New equipment for Durban Port

This is part of targeted interventions to renew Transnet’s fleet of port handling equipment in an effort to boost efficiency and productivity at South Africa’s flagship terminal. The agreement is for the design, manufacture, delivery and commissioning of the seven cranes to replace the Terminal’s ageing infrastructure.

The urgent procurement in terms of Transnet’s accelerated fleet renewal plan will immediately address the terminal’s performance, making Pier 2 the first terminal in Africa to operate tandem lift STS cranes. The tandem lift capability of the cranes, which can simultaneously handle two 12m containers or four 6m containers within hoisting capability of 80 tons, is a significant step towards making Pier 2 a globally competitive terminal as is the case with Pier 1. The cranes, to be manufactured in China, will be installed during the 2012/13 financial year.

South African port operator Transnet SOC Ltd signed an agreement with China-based Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industries Co (ZPMC) for the purchase of seven tandem lift ship-to-shore (STS) cranes for the Durban Container Terminal - Pier 2.
