( BOLLORE) - Bolloré Ports has ordered two mobile port cranes to reinforce the stevedoring capacities of Tincan Island Container Terminal Limited (TICT) in Lagos. The cranes will enable the container terminal to contribute to volume growth in Nigeria, Africa’s leading economy.
TICT’s new Konecranes Gottwald Model 7 cranes will be equipped with an electric power system that substantially reduces CO2 emissions as well as energy consumption.
“The mobile cranes ordered for TICT as part of its investment programme will provide Nigeria with a top-quality port platform. On delivery, scheduled for August 2021, the eco-responsible mobile cranes will support the ramp-up of import and export flows,” said Olivier De Noray, Managing Director of Port Concessions at Bolloré Ports.
With a 100-tonne lifting capacity, the mobile cranes deployed on the docks of Tincan Island in Lagos will enable the processing of high-capacity ships and reduce ship waiting times by improving operational performance.
Having already made major investments in port facilities and infrastructure, TICT is maintaining its position as the leading terminal in Nigeria’s economic capital. Through its highway connection to the metropolitan area and its industrial centres and with the development of waterways, TICT and its 625 direct Nigerian employees are contributing to Nigeria’s economic growth.
