The new cranes have greater height and outreach than the six other cranes already in service at Abidjan Terminal. When they come into service next February, these ship to shore (STS) container cranes will speed container loading and unloading and be able to serve container ships of more than 8,000 TEUs.
With a maximum payload of 65 metric tons (corresponding to two full containers at the same time: "twin lift"), they will complement the existing handling equipment and significantly improve productivity at Abidjan’s port. That means better quality of service for ship owners and clients.
Designed by ZPMC, the world's leader in the manufacturing of port equipment, the two new cranes boast next-generation electronics and innovative control systems. They meet all ship owners' requirements in terms of quality of service, speed and safety.
