Gulftainer has placed an order for four Super Post Panamax Ship to Shore Gantry Cranes and twelve Rubber Tyred Gantry Cranes for container terminal operations at its Khorfakkan Container Terminal. The contract, backed up by ZPMC’s export credit arrangement, was signed at the company’s Shanghai Head Office by their Senior Vice President and Gulftainer’s Group Director of Business Services, Ramesh Shivakumaran.
In March 2013, a high level delegation from ZPMC led by its President Dr. Liu Jianzhong visited Gulftainer’s facilities in Khorfakkan Container Terminal (KCT) and were impressed with the volumes and high productivity achieved by the Terminal.
Group Director Ramesh Shivakumaran commented, “KCT is one of the world’s fastest container terminals in terms of productivity and the terminal’s volume increased by over 25% in 2012. ZPMC cranes are not only expected to maintain, but also increase the speed and efficiency of operations for vessels calling at the terminal. ZPMC’s gantry cranes are expected to be delivered during the second half of 2014.”
ZPMC said it was delighted to be part of Gulftainer’s growth and expansion in Khorfakkan Port and looks forward to increasing its presence in the region and to be a preferred choice in the future for all port crane requirements for Gulftainer’s facilities in the UAE and overseas locations.
