Tanjung Pelepas enhances performance with four new cranes

The Port of Tanjung Pelepas (PTP), the largest container terminal in Malaysia, has received four new ship to shore (STS) quay cranes in June 2020, as part of a continued drive to optimise services and capacity.

PTP, a joint venture between APM Terminals and MMC's ports and logistics division, said in an announcement that the purchase of the Super Post Panamax cranes forms part of its Asset Management Strategy, which aims to improve the efficiency in the terminal, by increasing container handling capacity, capability and reliability, whilst meeting its safety standards.

The new cranes have a lifting capacity of 59tonnes, are 55.5m high, weigh 1,900tonnes and are capable of handling ultra large container vessels (ULVC).

PTP’s chairman, Dato’ Sri Che Khalib Mohamad Noh, said that a series of equipment purchased by PTP is to enable the port to receive these ultra large container vessels.

PTP’s Chief Executive Officer, Marco Neelsen, stated that the four cranes form part of a purchase agreement, signed with ZPMC, Shanghai in April 2019 for the supply of eight ULCV STS quay cranes. The remaining four units are expected to be delivered in the third quarter of 2020 to bring a total of 66 STS cranes in operation at PTP of which 24 are Triple-E compliant.
