New Cranes Arrive at TECON Santa Catarina, Brazil

TECON Santa Catarina is building a new terminal in Itapúa, Brazil, and purchased four ship-to-shore (STS) cranes and eleven rubber tire gantry (RTG) cranes from ZPMC.  The STS cranes are conventional single lift, rope trolley type cranes that were manufactured at ZPMC’s Changxing Island and Jiangyin facilities near Shanghai.  The Liftech team provided crane procurement services to TECON SC, including technical specifications; a review of the structural, mechanical, and electrical design of the cranes; and crane manufacturing audits at ZPMC’s facilities.  After a six week journey that crossed the Indian Ocean, rounded the Cape of Good Hope, and then crossed the Atlantic Ocean, the cranes finally arrived in Brazil on November 4, 2010.
