New STS crane arrives at Hili Company’s terminal in Latvia

Hili Company’s container terminal in Latvia, Baltic Container Terminal, has received delivery of its newly acquired ship-to-shore crane. With a lifting capacity of 45t under spreader, an outreach of 47m and a lift above quay level of 34m, this crane is an integral part of BCT’s ongoing investment programme aimed at increasing capacity, enhancing cargo-handling efficiency and supporting the terminal’s infrastructure.

Produced by Sany, the new crane brings the total number of ship-to-shore cranes at the terminal to five. The crane, which will allow for servicing of larger vessels and will also significantly speed up operations at the terminal, is expected to be commissioned in June 2020.
