SYRIAN PORT GEARS UP
MANILA-based International Container Terminal Services Inc (ICTSI) has ordered two new Liebherr LHM 400 mobile harbor cranes to provide over the quay container handling at its new Tartous container terminal concession in Syria.
The two new mobiles are the first cranes to be ordered for such duty in Syria, where container handling has traditionally been undertaken by geared vessels.
Located on the North Quay, Pier B in the port of Tartous and featuring a 540m quay and 250,000 square meter back-up area, ICTSI plans to invest approximately US$39 million on the new container terminal over the lifetime of the concession. In addition, to the two new Liebherr LHM 400 mobiles, investments are also now underway in terminal superstructure, landside container handling equipment, a container terminal management system incorporating user friendly client interfaces, and in human resources and training. Further investments will take place in line with traffic development.
