SETO is a partnership between the shipping line Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) and stevedoring company Terminaux de Normandie (TN), created to secure the necessary investment for shipping development at Le Havre.

"Such figures confirm the confidence of world port and maritime professionals in the development of the Port of Le Havre - Port 2000 in particular," said Jean-Marc Lacave, Executive Director, Port of Le Havre Authority. The new super post-panamax cranes are equipped with double trolleys and intermediary platforms. They will have the ability to serve container ships up to twenty-two TEU widths.
