Pune, India, 3 February 2012 – Three Terex® TFC 45 reach stackers have recently been delivered to Mundhra Container Freight Station (CFS) in India. The first two units were commissioned in November in the presence of Captain Navjeet Grewal, Director of Mundhra CFS Ltd. for its customer Excellent Engineering & Allied Services. Both units are currently operating in Mundhra Port & Special Economic Zone (SEZ) - India’s largest private port and special economic zone situated in Gujarat. The third unit was commissioned in December, and is now being operated by Aditya CFS (a Mundhra CFS sister company) in the Port of Kandla.

With a time-proven reputation for rugged reliability and efficiency in demanding port terminal environments worldwide, the hydraulic Terex TFC 45 was chosen by Mundhra CFS for its dependable design and low maintenance requirements.

“October to April is the peak season for Mundhra CFS, and these machines will be working up to 22 hours a day in an extremely hot and salty environment,” says Nicolas Pricak, Terex after-sales engineer, India. “The TFC 45’s hydraulic system is extremely durable so they can run virtually non-stop.”

Reliability was one of the reasons that motivated Mundhra Ltd’s purchase decision, as Captain Grewal explains, “Our TFC 45s’ long-interval maintenance design is something that we can rely on to handle our customers’ port logistic infrastructure’s high throughput. For this application, a time proven and reliable design was of paramount importance, and our three new TFC 45 reach stackers have precisely that reputation.”
