Tawau Port Receives New Reachstacker

Thursday, June 23, 2016

Sabah Ports Sdn Bhd is pleased to announce the acquisition of a Terex Fantuzzi reachstacker for Tawau Port. The equipment, commissioned by Terex Port Solutions, was purchased to improve container yard operations which in turn is expected to boost Tawau Port’s container handling productivity. The Terex Fantuzzi model is equipped with a lifting capacity of 45 tonnes and ability to stack containers up to 5 rows high.

The equipment will complement the 4 units of reachstackers currently stationed at Tawau Port.

With this new addition, Tawau Port’s current container handling rate which averages on 17moves an hour is expected to improve significantly owing to more efficient yard operations. Tawau Port handles almost 70, 000 teus annually making it the leading container handling port among Sabah Ports Sdn Bhd’s east coast ports line up.

A handing over ceremony was held at Tawau Port’s premise on the 23 June 2016 to commemorate the latest addition to the ports fleet of machineries. Officiating the event was Sabah Ports Sdn Bhd Chairman, Datuk Karim Hj Bujang.
