Mayotte Channel Gateway (MCT) took up a 15-year concession on the container facilities at Mayotte’s Commercial Port of Longoni late last year. It has plans to expand the operating area of the port and bring in new equipment.

MCT has ordered five Gaussin ATT-V4 Automotive Terminal Trailers and six hybrid power packs for delivery in Q4 2014. The ATTs will be joined by three Liebherr LHM 420 mobile harbour cranes, two of which will be electrically powered, and four RTGs. 

Located in the Mozambique channel 500 km from the East African coast and 300 km from Madagascar, Longoni wants to take advantage of its position to attract transhipment cargo. 

“We aim to make this port, built into the largest enclosed lagoon in the world, a model for 
"green" infrastructure. Performance and ecology are therefore the two priorities that have guided our choice in favour of Gaussin’s ATT and Power Pack Hybrid, by far the best port facilities on the market today” said Mrs Ida Nel, MCT President.

Gaussin also reports an order for one customised “self propelled trailer type 117/8” with a 75 ton capacity. It will be used on a floating liquified Natural Gas facility in Australia. 

The value of both orders is €2.84M.
