Cargo handling solutions and services company Kalmar is expected to upgrade four ZPMC ship to shore cranes, signing an agreement with Moroccan container terminal Eurogate Tanger (EGT), located on the Strait of Gibraltar in Morocco.

According to Vertical, Kalmar will work on raising the height of the four cranes by 11 meters and extend the booms by six meters. The project will start by 2020, «enabling the terminal to serve the largest container vessels».

«With this investment, which is the biggest since the commencement of operations in 2008, EGT will be ready from the second half of next year to accommodate the latest generation ultra large container ships with a capacity of 23,000 TEUs working up to 25 rows across», Eurogate Tangier chief executive Andrea Cervia said.

Meanwhile, Kalmar vice president sales Eduardo Prat said that «[Kalmar’s] track record and expertise in these kinds of crane upgrade projects is exemplary, and we are the only provider capable of completing the work in such a short timescale».
