APM Terminals orders 28 automated cranes

APM Terminals in Rotterdam Maasvlakte II has ordered 28 automated cranes. These will make the terminal efficient and secure, writes APM Terminals in a press release.  

APM Terminals Rotterdam Maasvlakte II has ordered 26 Automated Rail Mounted Gantry (ARMG) Cranes and two Rail Cranes for the automated container terminal in Rotterdam Maasvlakte II, which opens in November 2014.

“We’re designing the terminal of the future to serve the ships of the future. Our customers expect the highest standards in safety, productivity, innovation, automation and eco-friendliness. These ARMGs will be the high performance workhorses of the terminal - capable of supporting the scale of container stack activity associated with multiple large container ships in port. Equally important, the ARMGs are good news for shippers and truckers due to their safety and efficiency”, states Frank Tazelaar, Managing Director of APM Terminals Maasvlakte II.
