TCV Stevedoring Company, a Grup TCB company managing the transport of goods at the Levante and Llovera docks in the Port of Valencia, has received its fourth Super Post Panamax crane for operating large vessels up to 22 containers wide.

Developed by Shanghai Zhenhua Port Machinery (ZMPC), the acquired gantry crane weighs 1,600 tons, is capable of lifting 65 tons and is 44 meters high under the spreader. Its speed is 180 meters per minute hoisting empty containers and 90 meters per minute in the case of fully loaded containers. The new crane has a reach of 62.5 meters on the sea side and 20 meters on the land side, while the distance between rails ascends to 30.48 meters.

Acquisition of the new Super Post Panamax crane forms part of an ambitious investment program developed by TCV Stevedoring to consolidate the Valencian facilities as a point of reference for productivity and efficiency in western Mediterranean ports. Four new RTGs will be added in the coming months, allowing TCV to increase and improve its service to its customers.

The operational capability of TCV has also been boosted by the five-hectare expansion of the container yard area, which has been carried out this year and raises the current surface area of the terminal to 47 hectares.

The TCV terminal has a 1,660-meter dock and a depth of 16 meters. In addition to the Super Post Panamax cranes, its equipment includes four Post Panamax cranes, two Panamax cranes, 22 RTG cranes and seven reachstackers, among others. The company’s machinery is set to operate with all types of container ships.
