Paceco Portainer for Fos
A 67m outreach, 50m lift height Portainer has been commissioned by Paceco Momentum at the Seayard terminal, in Marseille-Fos
The Malaccamax-rated STS crane is amongst the world’s largest container cranes and came into service on 13th November, handling its first commercial operation for Seayard working over a Hapag-Lloyd vessel.
The crane can stack 25 rows across deck on a 67m outreach, has a lift height above spreader of 50m and has a 30.48m rail span. It is equipped with Siemens Sinamics AC control system and has an energy chain trolley instead of a festoon, among other top class European components, also including the latest safety devices.
The crane was manufactured by the now defunct Paceco España and was originally ordered in 2016. The new Paceco licensee in Europe, Paceco Momentum, which took over the license in August 2018 and is a member of the Paceco Group, was hired to do commissioning of the crane by performing endurance tests, preparing the manuals, obtaining CE approvals and conducting all handover work.
"Pececo Momentum inherited 50 years of know-how and experience in the container handling industry and will help to ensure a positive experience with the crane and be closely involved in optimising its performance," said a spokeswoman for the company.
"All people involved in this project, as well as the exceptional collaboration and provision of technical and human resources by Seayard have definitely contributed to allow this project to end successfully."
Paceco Momentum is marketing its services to customers of the former Paceco España and also to potential new customers.
