The three cranes are expected to be delivered to APM Terminals on February 15, according to the terminal operator.

Manufactured by ZPMC in Shanghai, the super post-Panamax cranes will be able to accommodate 20,000 TEU vessels, giving the facility an annual container throughput capacity of five million TEUs. As explained, the STS cranes will be fully automated, including a remote crane operator located in an office building near the quay, and will feature a second trolley, and Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology.

APM Terminals ordered the twelve cranes as well as thirty-two Automated Rail-Mounted Gantry Cranes (ARMGs) for the MedPort Tangier facility in 2016.Scheduled to become operational in 2019, the new deep-water terminal at the Tanger-Med 2 port complex will be equipped with both conventional and fully-automated operations and an automated truck gate system.

APM Terminal already operates a facility at Tanger-Med 1 port.
