TECON Suape S.A. (TSSA) recently received eight new rubber-tired gantries (RTGs) for the Suape Container Terminal (SCT).

The purchase is part of TSSA’s three-year $45-million capital investment program for the terminal, which will further improve capacity and operations at the SCT, the most modern container handling facility in the northern and northeastern regions of Brazil.

Manufactured by Noell Cranes in China, each RTG has a stacking capacity of one-over-five high and a six-row-plus-one truck lane.

The RTG spreaders have an extension range of up to 40 TEUs and a lifting capacity under spreader of 41 tons. It is also equipped with global and container positioning systems.

The RTGs, which will be operational by end March, bring SCT’s RTG fleet to 12 units.

TSSA is a subsidiary of International Container Terminal Services, Inc.
