DELIVERY OF TWO CUSTOMER-TAILORED REACH STACKERS PROVIDE UNBEATEN HANDLING CAPABILITIES WITH MULTIRIO, BRAZIL
Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, January 18th, 2012 – Terex Cranes has established a new performance record with a customized, high-capacity version of its reputed Terex® TFC 46M HC Reach Stacker, with two units recently delivered to MultiRio Operaçoes Portuarias S.A., one of Brazil’s leading port handling operators.
Produced at the Terex Cranes facility in Montceau-les-Mines, France, and delivered via its distributor Equiport in September, the two Terex® TFC46MS HC units were specially adapted to suit the needs of a specialized cargo-handling contract awarded to MultiRio earlier this year for operation in the Port of Rio de Janeiro, Terminal II.
Highest performance capacity currently available
Built to operate in both container handling and hook block applications, the Terex® TFC 46MS HC combines the benefits of multi-attachment versatility and the accuracy to access and handle bulk and containerized cargo smoothly and efficiently.
Providing end-users the advantages of longer reach and higher lifting capabilities than any other reach stacker currently available when equipped with a top-pick spreader, the Terex® TFC 46MS HC offers a maximum lifting capacity of 15 tonnes at 11 meter radius as well as stack up to seven full ISO dry containers on the first row, and up to five full High Cube containers on the third row. Equipped with its easily interchangeable hook block, this newly customized model offers the ability to handle bulk cargo up to 60 tonnes.
“Thanks to MultiRio’s confidence in our team’s expertise and ability to respond to their challenging requirements, the Terex® TFC 46MS HC opens new doors to all end-users in the containerized port handling sector worldwide,” says Manuel Teixeira, Reach Stacker Design and Development Manager, Terex Cranes, Montceau-les-Mines.
“Besides setting a new performance record, this version’s reduced gross weight and the use of standard Terex components has allowed us to increase operational cost-efficiency while reducing maintenance costs.” explains Teixeira.
