The eight new ZPMC cranes will be the largest ever ordered by Pelabuhan Tanjung Pelepas Sdn Bhd (PTP), and the largest cranes to date at any port in Malaysia when they are delivered in just 13 months. The contract was signed by Huang Qingfeng, President and Vice-secretary of ZPMC and Marco Neelsen, CEO ceremony of PTP on April 3.


Speaking with WorldCargo News at TOC Asia in Singapore this week a ZPMC spokesperson said PTP wanted the cranes as quickly as possible, and ZPMC is able to meet a 13 month delivery time in this instance, partly because the shipping distance from Changxing Island to Tanjung Pelepas in Malaysia is relatively close.


The new cranes will be ZPMC’s “3E Plus STS crane”, which is a bigger version of the “3E” crane ZPMC originally developed for Maersk’s 18,000 TEU vessels. Outreach of the 3E Plus design is 80m, and lift height above rail is 54m.


The ten RTG will be built at Nantong, where ZPMC has two separate bases for RTG production.
