Terex Port Solutions (TPS) has received an order from Malaysian port operator Sabah Ports Sdn. Bhd. (Sabah Ports) to supply two Terex ship-to-shore cranes (STS) to its Sapangar Bay Container Port (SBCP). The cranes will be manufactured at the TPS site in Xiamen, China, and are due to be put into operation in the second half of 2017.
The STS cranes will help SBCP to enhance significantly the productivity of its operations. These cranes offer SBCP a lifting capacity of 41 t under twin-lift spreader, an outreach of 45 m and are designed to load and unload container vessels with up to 15 rows.
The two STS cranes for SBCP are part of a series of orders that Sabah Ports recently placed with TPS. In June 2016, one Terex Gottwald Model 2 mobile harbour crane as well as two Terex reach stackers, one for Sabah Port’s terminal in the Port of Sandakan and the other for the Port of Tawau, were put into operation. These machines supplemented the three mobile harbour cranes already purchased by Sabah Ports, one for Sandakan in 2005 and two for Tawau in 2005 respectively in 2008. Additionally, four Terex rubber-tyred gantry cranes (RTG) were ordered for SBCP.
