The straddle carriers were produced for VSC by ZPMC, one of the world's leading manufacturers of port equipment. The machines have a load capacity of 40 tonnes and will be used for in-port transportation and stacking of containers.
With the new machines, there are now 27 straddle carries at VSC. In the coming months, eight tractor-trailer systems and two front loaders with lifting capacities of 16 and 32 tonnes will also be added to the fleet.
In 2023, VSC commissioned two Liebherr LHM 550 extra-heavy mobile harbour cranes, six RMGs and three RTGs, four reachstackers, including two units with increased load capacity, as part of its capacity modernisation programme. In addition, in 2022-2023 Global Ports relocated more than 25 units of port equipment from North-West terminals to VSC. < Back to list
