Terex Port Solutions (TPS) will supply six additional Terex® rubber-tyred gantry (RTG) cranes to Manila North Harbor Port Inc. (MNHPI).
The cranes, which are being manufactured at the TPS facility in Xiamen, PR China, will be delivered at the end of 2014 to the largest port handling domestic cargo in the Philippines, where four Terex RTG cranes began operation in summer 2013.
MNHPI is responding to the rapid development of the port, said Richard D. Barclay, MNHPI’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO): “We continue to invest in the modernization of our infrastructure in order to develop and transform our facilities into a first-class port.”
The decision to order six further RTG cranes from TPS was based on the positive experience with the first machines and the TPS team over the past year.
“The four RTG cranes have more than fulfilled our expectations, and so did the after-sales service provided. It was a logical decision to opt for TPS with a view to a further expansion of our capacities,” Barclay concluded.
