On May 26, 2021, the ZHEN HUA 19 ship delivered new equipment from China to the container terminal of NUTEP (part of DeloPorts, a stevedore asset of Delo Group) - five Rubber Tyred Gantry (RTG) gantry container cranes manufactured Chinese heavy machinery corporation Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industries Co., Ltd (ZPMC).
The manufacture and supply of cranes, the contract for which was signed in May 2020 and is estimated at USD 8 million 350 thousand, is part of the final stage of an investment project for the reconstruction and expansion of the container terminal's capacity.
Yury Matvienko, Chief Executive Officer of NUTEP, noted: “The new cranes have a significant advantage - they are capable of storing a tier of six (6 + 1) containers, while the currently operated crane equipment is only out of five (5 + 1). The increase in the number of layers will allow us to expand the capacity of the storage area by 15% and ensure the receipt and dispatch of additional cargo volumes. "
The NUTEP terminal currently operates five RTG KONE CRANE cranes and four RTG ZPMC cranes. The new equipment is planned to be commissioned in the 3rd quarter of 2021.
