Spotted: HPT Welcomes Giant Cranes with Remote Control System


Container terminal operator Hutchison Ports Thailand (HPT) has received three super post-panamax quay cranes and eight electric rubber tyred gantry cranes from Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industry (ZPMC). 

The arrival of the new cranes comes as the terminal operator is expanding its handling capacity with the development of Terminal D in Laem Chabang Port.

Both types of cranes are equipped with remote control technology.

“All Terminal D quay and yard cranes will be operated by remote control technology, making it the first terminal of its type in the world to fully install this technology,” according to HPT.

The three super post-panamax quay cranes have an outreach of 24 rows and are capable of handling some of the largest mega-vessels currently in operation, the terminal operator said.

As informed, the cranes are an integral part of the Terminal D development as well as the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) project under Thailand 4.0 scheme.

Following the completion of Terminal D’s construction, Hutchison Ports Thailand will be able to increase its handling capacity by 3.5 million TEUs to more than 6 million TEUs.
