The Baltic Container Terminal (BCT), operating in the Port of Riga, has started using its brand-new SANY ship-to-shore (STS) crane.
The gantry, which arrived in May for on-site final assembly, has a maximum lifting capacity of 45t under the spreader and an outreach of 45 m, making it possible to move containers across 15 rows.
"The Baltic Container Terminal works relentlessly to remain the client's first choice in the field of container cargo handling not only in the port of Riga and Latvia, but also in the entire Baltic region. Our competitiveness is based on efficiency and productive capacity provided by a continuous process of innovation, investment in new technologies and modern equipment. The new container crane will further increase the efficiency of our terminal by providing faster and safer ship service to meet the growing demands of our clients," Gerard Sammut, CEO, BCT, commented.
BCT has now in operation four STSes, two 35t and one 30t of lifting capacity apart from the latest addition.
