Terex Port Solutions (TPS) has received orders from Bharat Mumbai Container Terminals Pte Ltd (BMCT), a wholly owned subsidiary of PSA International Pte Ltd (PSA) to supply various types of Terex stacking cranes. The orders include 18 Terex rubber-tyred gantry cranes (RTG) and four Terex rail-mounted gantry cranes (RMG). The RTG order also includes an option on 18 additional units. The flexible, productive and environmentally friendly machines will be handed over in three batches of six units each of RTGs between September and November 2017 whilst the RMG cranes will be delivered to Mumbai in September 2017. The RMGs will be utilised in BMCT’s railyard, which can handle double-stack container trains of up to 1.5 km long. BMCT will be the second Indian subsidiary of PSA to operate cranes from TPS. In 2015, four RTGs were put into operation by Bharat Kolkata Container Terminals Pte Ltd.
Maurizio Altieri, Vice President Sales & Service TPS Asia, is delighted by the confidence that BMCT has shown in the machines from TPS, “BMCT will be a key player in one of the most dynamic Asian markets and is a subsidiary of a globally leading port operator. We are proud that from the end of 2017 a total of 26 cranes from TPS will contribute to PSA’s rapid growth in India. The fact that the customer opted for Terex RTG and RMG cranes confirms our diversified portfolio strategy.”
