The ten RTG cranes are scheduled for delivery in December 2010. Mr. Zhang Jun Sheng (张俊生), General Manager of Xiamen Ocean Gate Container Terminal Co.

At various container terminals at Xiamen Port, there are already more than 60 Terex® (formerly Noell China) RTG cranes in operation. These are good-quality machines that get their jobs done reliably at a low total cost of ownership. We are confident that the new machines will get their jobs done equally efficient with the same good performance as usual.”
“I would like to thank Xiamen Ocean Gate Container Terminal Co. Ltd. for their confidence in Terex Port Equipment,” says Mr. Ostermann. “This contract is a clear signal to me that our product offering fulfils the needs of our key customers and that our management efforts of the last months are being recognized. We already transferred a lot of expertise from Terex to the port equipment business. We will continue this process to further improve our products. I strongly believe that the port equipment experts that we are bringing together at Terex Cranes are a very powerful asset that will reach its full potential when combined with the Terex Management System.”
