    NUTEP takes delivery of handling equipment from ZPMC for new Berth No. 38

    A cargo of handling equipment for NUTEP on April 23 was successfully delivered on board M/V Zhen Hua 19 to the Port of Novorossiysk. The equipment was supplied by Chinese producer ZPMC. The shipment include 3 STS cranes, 4 RTGs and 2 reachstackers. The terminal operator said the equipment is intended for the new deep-water Berth No. 38 built by NUTEP in 2019.

    The contracts for STS and four RTG were signed in June 2017. The reachstacker pair was ordered in January 2019. The contracts value is $ 22.5 million (DAT).

    New STSs with track gauge of 18 m, outreach of 54 m and a height of 40 m above the berth are the largest cranes on the Russian Black Sea coast, capable of handling 10000 TEU containerships.

    The shipment included RTGs are capable of handling 7+1 wide containers / 1 over 5 high stacking and two reachstackers with a lifting capacity of 45 tonnes.

    The equipment was loaded to the M/V Zhen Hua on January 28 and it took a little less than three months to reach the Port of Novorossiysk. Unloading, installation and commissioning into service, depending on weather conditions, will take about 40 days. The ship crew, 35 specialists from ZPMC and of IPSK, St. Petersburg will take part in the assembly.

    The project of Berth No. 38 is being implemented as part of the general investment program, which involves both building Berth No. 38 and expansion of offdock areas, building additional storage yards and switching to RTG technology, which will increase storage density.

    The project will increase the NUTEP capacity from current 350 000 TEUs to 700 000 TEUs and enable the terminal operator to receive and handle 10,000 teu containerships, expand the facility storage capacity from 12,000 TEUs to 15,000 TEUs thanks to ondock area and up to 19,000 TEUs on offdock yards. In addition, the new berth will reduce the cost of delivery for container shipping lines.
