THE Mexican subsidiary of International Container Terminal Services Inc (ICTSI), Contecon Manzanillo SA (CMSA), has taken delivery of two quay cranes and five rubber-tyre gantry cranes as part of its second phase capacity improvement programme.

Manufactured by Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industries, the new quay cranes can service the largest ships deployed on intra-Pacific routes, with a reach of up to 24 container rows across. On the landside, the five RTGs are expected to boost the terminal's efficiency to match demand.



Once deployed, the CMSA fleet will comprise eight quay cranes and 21 RTGs - among the largest and most advanced in Mexico.



Aside from the new cranes, ICTSI is currently beefing up CMSA's capacity as part of its second phase expansion, including the terminal's yards and entry and exit gates, and is making investments in cutting-edge technology and the training of personnel, a company statement said.



As one of the fastest-growing marine gateways in America, CMSA achieved its first year-to-date, four-millionth TEU milestone last July.
