BCT acquires new STS crane
The new crane is produced by Sany

Baltic Container Terminal (BCT) has received a new ship-to-shore (STS) crane as part of the terminal’s ongoing investment programme aimed at increasing capacity and enhancing efficiency.

The new crane, produced by Sany, brings BCT total STS cranes to five and allows the terminal to service larger vessels as well as speed up operations.

As part of its investment programme, BCT has also recently commissioned a new 11,000 sq m warehouse, increasing the terminal’s warehousing capacity to a total of 31,000 sq m.

The new warehouse is 15.3 m high, has a storage capacity of 27,370 cu m and is served by both truck and rail.

It is divided into seven sections, heated, insulated and equipped with energy-efficient LED lighting.

Edward Hili, CEO of Hili Company, said: “We are committed to delivering on our investment programme at BCT to ensure that we continue to deliver the best possible service to our clients, whose needs remain our focus.

“These investments also represent an important step in the company’s development as we prepare for the next phase of growth.”
