The extension project will help to provide the port with the necessary infrastructureand modern equipment to meet the competitive challengesinto the future, in line with transportation policies promoted by the European Union in response to increased maritime traffic in the Mediterranean.

Following the contract award in Q3 2019, the crane was designed and built in Ireland by Liebherr Container CranesLtd.The Liebherr STS crane design with high tensile steeland a lattice beam and boom results in an optimised weight distribution for the crane with a low centre of gravity. The Liebherrcrane design is perfectly suited to the reducedpermissible wheel loading requirements of older quays.

All terminal equipment at TMS is linked to the control center for quality assurance and to guarantee performance in operations. Likewise, the Liebherr crane features a remote crane management system allowing for remote assistance,service and diagnostics.For TMS safety is an important consideration at their facility. The new Liebherr STS features a traffic light system for controlled traffic flow, laser and mechanical crane to crane anti collsion systems, ulatrasonic anti collision systems for gantry travel as well as laser boom to vessel anticollision and sill beam protection systems.

Liebherr Iberica, a mixed sales and service company based in Spain worked closely with Liebherr Container Cranes Ltd.and with Terminales Maritimas Del Sureste to bring the project to a successful completion. For the future, TMS will benefit from the established service network and experienced service engineers of Liebherr Iberica.
