IRC Natural Resources Pvt. Ltd., which is part of the IRC Group (IRC), has ordered two Model 4 mobile harbour cranes in the G HMK 4406 B 4-rope grab variant for its contract at Berth No. 13, Haldia Dock Complex. In August 2016, the cranes will be transported to India. The two machines have a 40-t grab curve and a maximum lifting capacity of 100 t. The cranes are expected to be operational by October 2016.
Anil Gupta, Chairman, IRC Group: “Our global growth strategy continues to be aimed at diversification. Here, the port sector at the Haldia site will play a major role. To win the trust of our customers in our capability in this new sector right from the start, we opted for cranes from TPS in our new contract. These machines offer us both excellent productivity and high availability.”
Andreas Moeller, Sales Director Harbour Cranes TPS, commented: “We have significantly expanded our Indian business within a very short time. IRC is the eighth customer to order mobile harbour cranes from us since mid-2014. The machines for Haldia will be the eleventh and twelfth cranes to go to India in this period. We will then have delivered around 40 machines there overall.”
