STI receives new cranes to accommodate foreign trade

San Antonio Terminal Internacional (STI) in Chile has received two new ZPMC Super Post Panamax ship-to-shore cranes.

The equipment is part of STI’s USD66 million investment plan, set to accommodate foreign trade.

“These cranes are great news not only for STI and San Antonio but for the entire country,” says STI board chairman Mauricio Carrasco.

“We need more competitive ports, especially in a country open to the world like Chile.”

The upgrade includes two rubber-tyred gantry cranes, 19 reachstackers, one empty container handler and 50 terminal tractors.

STI CEO Rodrigo Galleguillos says the investment reaffirms STI’s leadership in the country.

“We are making investments to keep the port modern, safe and efficient,” says Galleguillos.

The fully assembled cranes weigh 1.3 T and have a reach of 22 container rows and 60 m.

The lift height is 42 m and the main structure is built at 78 m above the ground.

STI transfers about 27% of the country’s containers. The investment plan is set to increase capacity to 1.6 million TEUs, up from 1.1 million TEUs last year.
