Ngqura sets new record

Transnet Port Terminals achieved record-breaking cargo handling productivity when the MSC SOLA visited the Port of Ngqura recently

At 364m loa by 45.6m beam (17-wide) and 15.5m depth, MSC SOLA is the biggest container ship to call at a South African port to date. The vessel first called Pier 1, Durban and then sailed on to Ngqura (Coega) where, for the first time ever, TPT had the opportunity to deploy six STS cranes over a ship.

The Ngqura consignment of 5408 mainly transhipment containers was the biggest single load to be handled from any vessel calling at the terminal. It comprised 1872 inbound moves and 3536 outbound moves.

TPT's terminal executive for the Eastern Cape Terminals, Siya Mhlaluka, said that two of the eight-strong fleet of Liebherr STS cranes had only recently been procured and commissioned to cater for the projected growth in the market's volume demand.

With six cranes in use on the first and second days, quayside operators achieved a record ship working hour (SWH) rate, of 153 SWH on day one and 121 on day two. Two cranes were transferred to another vessel on day 3. The terminal had its work cut out for it in the final days before the vessel’s departure from the port, when strong winds affected container handling productivity.
