Tincan Island Container Terminal Limited (TICT) has ordered two Konecranes Gottwald Generation 6 Mobile Harbour Cranes to improve operational efficiency and support container traffic development
The cranes, which are expected to be delivered in June 2022, have a working radius of 54 m and a capacity of 150 tons. They have strong lifting capacity and a customised propping base adapted to local conditions, as well as a tower extension to reach higher container stacks.
This is the latest investment from TICT to modernise the container terminal. TICT is also committed to accelerating its efforts in the environmental field based on the eight pillars of the Green Terminal label.
Etienne Rocher, managing director of TICT, commented, “This new acquisition is part of a global project to boost the competitiveness of the port of Lagos. The two mobile cranes that will equip the container terminal will provide improved handling capacity to meet the demands of the steadily growing business and enhance our productivity. We are also working in the meantime to expand our barging activities to promote a more sustainable logistics solution to our clients in line with our CSR strategy.”
