ICTSI Poland starts using MHC

By: | at 07:00 PM | Ports & Terminals  

Baltic Container Terminal (BCT) in Poland recently handled its first heavy cargo using its new Liebherr LHM-400 mobile harbor crane (MHC) from sister company Tartous International Container Terminal (TICT) in Tartous, Syria. The MHC took only 30 minutes to haul the 97.5 tons transformer, from unloading to transferring the cargo to a dedicated storage area. The cargo, which consisted of two transformers and an electric unit, were shipped by DHL Global Forwarding Poland for delivery to Russia. Photo shows the new MHC lifting the transformer. BCT early on realized the need for a ship-to-shore handling equipment which could handle project cargo of up to 100 tons. With the acquisition of the MHC, BCT is now ready to service heavy and oversized cargo using the equipment. BCT is a subsidiary of ICTSI, a leading port management company involved in the operations and development of 21 marine terminals and port projects in 15 countries worldwide.
