The cranes forms the first shipment of overall 6 new STS cranes and 18 E-RTG cranes order of the Terminal. These 2 STS cranes will have 62 meters 22 rows out-reach capacity, designed to serve 14,000 TEU vessels. E-RTG cranes will be 1 over 6 high and 7+1 wide to handle the yard operations and E-RTG cranes will be fitted state-of-the-art technologies and equipment.

Following latest investment of 2 additional Gottwald HMK 8410 Mobile Harbor Cranes to have 58 meters working radius, 100 tons safe working load, 60 meters boom length and capable of serving vessels up to 19 rows wide, Yilport continues its strong investments with new STS and RTG Cranes.
