TECON Brazil Crane Procurement

TECON Santa Catarina built a new terminal in Itapoá, Brazil, and purchased four ship-to-shore (STS) cranes and eleven rubber tire gantry (RTG) cranes from ZPMC in China.

Liftech provided crane procurement services including technical specifications; a review of the structural, mechanical, and electrical design of the cranes; and crane manufacturing audits at ZPMC’s facilities.

As part of the manufacturing audit work, Liftech retained a local auditor to perform on-site fabrication and commissioning audit services.

The cranes arrived in Brazil after a six-week journey that began in China, crossed the Indian Ocean, rounded the Cape of Good Hope, and then crossed the Atlantic Ocean.
