Konecranes will supply two eco-efficient Konecranes Gottwald Model 7 mobile harbor cranes to Tincan Island Container Terminal Limited (TICT) in Lagos, Nigeria. The contract, which was booked in January 2021, shows Konecranes’ commitment to helping customers and industries grow and change so they can work more efficiently, sustainably and safely.

Long-term customer TICT, a subsidiary of Bolloré Transport & Logistics (Bolloré), the largest transport and logistics company in Africa, placed the order in anticipation of expanded container traffic in 2021 and beyond. With the new cranes, which will be delivered in August 2021, TICT can also handle larger ships.

“The requirements placed on liner vessels are constantly changing and require increasingly more powerful cranes with flexibility in cargo handling and the operation of double-lift containers, as larger ships call at our port more frequently. Our experience with Konecranes equipment has always been excellent. We’re excited to add two more Model 7 cranes to our facility, ”said Etienne Rocher, MD of TICT.

“These cranes will increase the size of the TICT Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Crane fleet to twelve and give TICT the ability to reduce the time spent in port through improved operational efficiency. This order shows the strength of our long-term partnership with Bolloré, with whom we work in their locations around the world as they continue to grow, ”says Andreas Czwalinna, Regional Sales Manager at Konecranes Port Solutions.

The new cranes will be operated by TICT in the Tincan area of ​​the port of Lagos, where they will handle containers in addition to a fleet of six Model 4, two Model 6 and two additional Model 7 Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Cranes that are already on site.

A strong focus on customers and a commitment to business growth and continuous improvement make Konecranes a leader in the lifting industry. This is underpinned by investments in digitization and technology as well as our work to increase the efficiency of the material flow with solutions that decarbonize the economy and promote circularity and safety.
