The vessel Zhen Hua 15, carrying 2 STS cranes and 3 RMGCs, traversed 5,300 nautical miles over a period of 20 days to reach the facility. The cranes are being unloaded and will be commissioned in due course of time, informed a communique.
The new cranes with 23 rows reach will help cater to larger vessels in shorter time, thereby increasing operational efficiencies at the terminal. With their commissioning, the terminal capacity will enhance by 10% to 2.2 million TEUs per annum.
GTI thanked its customers and stakeholders for their understanding and support during its transformation journey. “We are gearing up to welcome larger vessels and handling larger volumes efficiently, thereby offering superior customer experience,” it stressed in a statement.
