Port of Trieste revamps three cranes at Molo VII

TRIESTE - Operations have started at Trieste’s Molo VII terminal, for the revamping of two cranes to bring them to a handling capacity of 21 container rows. The cost of the operation will be approximate 10 million Euro. Crane booms will be extended and ground structure lifted up to enlarge the operational capacity.

The interventions will also include the electronic control of mechanical parts of the ex Paceco-Reggiane cranes, in service since 1994. The cranes will be converted from continuous electrical flow to alternate flow, while the Siemens electronic group will be renewed with the installation of a “smart landing system”, for a better control of loading and unloading of the containers. The same kind of improvements could be made soon also on a third crane, already at the service of the Molo VII, managed by Trieste Marine Terminal .The revamping operations should be completed by 2016 and will be conducted by Cimolai Technology from Padova, in temporary association (ATI) with Port Cranes srl from Reggio Emilia.
