Tincan Island Container Terminal Limited (TICT) has ordered two eco-efficient Konecranes Gottwald Generation 6 Mobile Harbour Cranes.
The Cranes are Expected to be delivered in June 2022. This new equipment is expected to improve the operational efficiency of TICT and support its container traffic development.
The Managing Director of TICT, Etienne Rocher, said, “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.”
The cranes have a working radius of 54 metres and a capacity of 150 tons. They feature strong lifting capacity for improved performance and also have customised propping base adapted to local conditions, as well as a tower extension to reach higher container stacks.
TICT also reiterated it’s commitment to accelerate its efforts in the environmental field based on the eight fundamental pillars of the green terminal label. This new approach approved by Bureau Veritas was launched in 2021 by Bolloré Ports and covers all environmental issues.
