APM Terminals is now investing in more Automated Rail-Mounted Gantry Cranes, so-called ARMG's, for the automated container terminal in Rotterdam, Maasvlakte II. The terminal operator has thus exercised options for 22 cranes from Austrian-based supplier Hans Kuenz GmbH along with ABB in Sweden, says APM Terminals in a statement:

"Exercising this order option is part of our original planning for the Maasvlakte II facility, and will bring us the yard capability for our 2.7 million TEU/year capacity and deliver the targeted service levels for our customers," said APM Terminals Maasvlakte II Managing Director, Frank Tazelaar.
