Chilean terminals opt for large cranes from TPS

Terex Port Solutions (TPS) has received two orders for large cranes from Chile. In the third quarter of 2016, a diesel-electric Terex Gottwald Model 8 mobile harbour crane in the G HMK 8410 two-rope variant has been delivered to Terminal Puerto Arica S.A. (TPA) in the far north of the country. It will be followed in the fourth quarter by an identical G HMK 8410 crane for the terminal of Compania Portuaria Mejillones S.A. (Mejillones) in Puerto Angamos located around 500 km further south. The maritime logistics group Ultramar S.A. has a share in both TPA and Mejillones. The two most recent orders from Chile highlight the strong demand for professional and mobile large cranes for container handling in South America.

Both cranes offer heavy-duty lifting capacity curves with a maximum lifting capacity of 100 t, an outreach of up to 58 m and achieve lifting speeds of 90 m/min. They are supplied with particularly high towers including correspondingly higher boom pivot points and tower cabs with a crane operator eye level of 38 m. This gives crane operators an excellent view of the vessel and the work area. The machines are intended for loading and unloading vessels up to super post-Panamax class with up to 19 container rows.
