Container terminals

Moving cranes like never before

Harsh contaminants, salt abrasives and high humidity. Port cranes have always endured corrosive operating conditions that make service life a challenge.

Today, market conditions have port operators pushing equipment to new limits. Under pressure to offload cargo quickly and keep harbour time costs low for ship owners, operators are moving full (or potentially overfull) containers, faster than ever. These increasing loads and shrinking handling times have crane engineers looking for ways to design-in robust, and low- to no-maintenance performance solutions.
