Port of Trieste upgrades further three cranes at Molo VII

After the completion of the upgrading of two STS-cranes in 2014 , this week work started at Trieste’s Molo VII terminal for the upgrading of additional three cranes.The total costs of around 12 million euros will make cranes capable of working on ships with 21 rows of containers on deck (so on vessels up to 16000 teu capacity).

The interventions will include the electronic control, while the Siemens electronic group will be renewed with the installation of a “smart landing system”, for a better control of loading and unloading of the containers. Work on the three cranes, which will be completed within one year,  will be conducted by Cimolai Technology from Padova, in temporary association (ATI) with Port Cranes srl from Reggio Emilia.
