ZPMC Delivers 2 STS Cranes to RWG in Rotterdam
Just before midday today, Thursday, the Zhen Hua 26 docked at the RWG terminal on Maasvlakte 2, Rotterdam. The vessel’s cargo consisted of 4 ZPMC Ship to shore container cranes, STS, 2 of which are for delivery to the RWG terminal.
Offloading the 2 cranes is expected to take 10 days after which the 2 cranes will be commissioned and are expected to be operational by the second half of the year

Ronald Lugthart, CEO at RWG: “The arrival of the cranes and AGVs will allow RWG to further optimize our services and capacity.

Together with our customers, stakeholders and partners, such as DP world, we will continue to develop our services.”
