Siemens’ scope of supply for APM Terminals MedPort Tangier includes the electrical and automation systems as well as the engineering and commissioning of 32 automated stacking cranes deployed in 16 intelligent yard blocks, which will be delivered in cooperation with innovative crane manufacturer Hans Künz GmbH, Hard (Austria). Siemens will also supply electrical systems used in twelve remote-controlled double trolley ship-to-shore cranes. This order was placed by the Chinese Zhenhua Port Machinery Company, one of the world’s biggest crane builders. The terminal, to be opened in 2019, will be the world’s first transshipment hub featuring an end loading yard concept. This container terminal is being developed by APM Terminals from The Hague in the Netherlands to accommodate ultra-large container ships, which provide capacity for up to 20,000 six metre equivalent units.
