TCV Stevedoring Gets New RTG

September 17, 2013

TCV Stevedoring Company, a stevedoring company in the Port of Valencia belonging to Grup TCB, last week took delivery of the components of its four new Konecranes (KNCRF) RTG cranes. The new machinery, part of an ambitious investment program  at the terminal, will be erected on the Muelle de Levante dock in the coming months.

The components of the four RTG cranes arrived in Valencia on Thursday on board the Medazov Julia, consigned by A. Perez y Cia., and the project's 116 pieces, with a total weight of 368 tonnes, were unloaded on Friday.

The whole process of assembly and "plug & play" will be carried out in an area that has been specially equipped for TCV at the northern end of the Muelle de Levante terminal in the Port of Valencia. The work has been planned so as not to interfere in any way with the daily operations of the terminal.

The assembly process will involve the manufacturer's engineering team, as well as those of the terminal itself.

It is planned to have the four new RTG available for operation by the TCV Stevedoring Company within two months, resulting in increased efficiency of the container terminal.
