The Tincan Island Container Terminal Limited (TICT) is set to take delivery of two new eco-efficient Konecranes Gottwald Model 7 Mobile Harbor Cranes.
TICT is Nigeria’s second busiest container terminal and operator of Terminal B, Tin Can Island Port Complex, Lagos. The terminal has three berths with a shore length of 770 meters and a backyard of 240,000 square meters.
The new cranes, which will be delivered in August 2021, will help TICT to accommodate larger vessels. The cranes will handle containers alongside a fleet of six Model 4, two Model 6 and two Model 7 Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbor cranes already on-site.
TICT Managing Director, Etienne Rocher, said, “Liner requirements are constantly evolving, increasingly requiring higher performance cranes with flexibility in cargo handling and twin-lift container operation as larger ships call more frequently at our port.
“Our experience with Konecranes equipment has always been excellent. We are pleased to add two more of the Model 7 cranes to our facility.”
Regional Sales Manager for Konecranes Port Solutions, Andreas Czwalinna, said, “These cranes will bring the number of the TICT Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbor crane fleet to 12, giving TICT the capacity to reduce vessel port stay through improved operational efficiency.
“This order illustrates the strength of our long-term partnership with Bolloré, working with them at their facilities around the world as they continue to grow,”
