Five rubber-tire gantry cranes (RTGs) and two ship-to-shore (STS) gantry cranes arrived at the new 1.3 million TEU deep-water APM Terminals Izmir facility in December, 2015.
The APM Terminals Izmir facility will have 700 meters of quay and a 16 meter depth during its first phase of development, with the ability to expand annual throughput capacity to four million TEUs annually.
RTGs and STS cranes, which has the capacity of handling ultra-large containerships (ULCS) of up to 16,000 TEU capacity, was conducted by Cosco’s general cargo vessel Da Tong Yun and Hong Kong-flagged heavy lift vessel Zhen Hua 25.
