Terex Port Solutions (TPS) has continued to strengthen its position in the Asia Pacific region with four new mobile harbour cranes.
Two additional Terex® Gottwald Model 6 mobile harbour cranes from the large crane family, ordered earlier this year, have been in use in the Port of Napier on New Zealand’s North Island since November. On 4 December, Northport Ltd. (Northport) officially launched its container hardstand area, and also a Terex Gottwald Model 4 mobile harbour crane from the medium-sized crane family at Marsden Point, also situated on the North Island. Finally, the world’s first Terex QuaymateTM M50 mobile harbour crane from the small crane family of TPS, which has been developed with German and international engineering expertise and is manufactured in China, will be delivered to Australia at the start of 2016.
For the order from Northport, TPS worked with TLL, who has now become a distributor of TPS in New Zealand. The crane most recently delivered in the G HMK 4406 variant has a maximum lifting capacity of 100 t, a working radius of up to 46 m and maximum hoisting speeds of 120 m/min, and now also enables Northport to load and unload container ships.
At the beginning of 2016, the world’s first Terex QuaymateTM M50 mobile harbour crane will be shipped to Australia. As a distributor of TPS and a rental company for port technology products, Tehmar Group PTY Ltd (Tehmar) based in Perth, will include the machine in its rental fleet and lease it to customers in the region.
