TICT orders two mobile harbor cranes to support its development

Puteaux. 21 March 2022

Tincan Island Container Terminal Limited (TICT) has ordered two eco-efficient Konecranes Gottwald Generation 6 Mobile Harbor Cranes. Expected to be delivered in June 2022, this new equipment will improve the operational efficiency of TICT and supports its container traffic development.

The cranes on order have a working radius of 54 m and a capacity of 150 tons. They feature strong lifting capacity for improved performance and have also a customized propping base adapted to local conditions, as well as a tower extension to reach higher container stacks.

Since 2006, TICT has made significant investments to modernise the container terminal and is now involved in other projects which include the modernisation of the barging service to mitigate urban congestion. TICT is also committed to accelerate its efforts in the environmental field based on the eight fundamental pillars of the Green Terminal label. This new approach approved by Bureau Veritas has been launched in 2021 by Bolloré Ports and covers all environmental issues.
