Eight Terex® NCS634E Diesel-Electric Straddle Carriers delivered to DP World, Australia

05.06.2012 – Terex announces the delivery of the first eight units out of a total of 16 energy-efficient Terex® NCS634E Diesel-Electric straddle carriers to its customer DP World in Melbourne. The remaining eight units are due for delivery later this year, bringing DP World Melbourne’s fleet to 22 state-of-the-art, reduced-emission Terex straddle carriers.

Terex® Straddle Carriers are highly versatile and productive container handling equipment due to their operational flexibility and ability to both transfer and lift containers at high speed. Available in hydrostatic (H) or diesel-electric (E) drive versions, the latter is optionally equipped with the unique EcoCap (EECO) energy-saving system. The Terex NCS 634 E straddle carrier offers a maximum lifting capacity of 60 tonnes (66.1 US t) with the ability to lift 1 over 3, 2,89-meter (9 ft 6-in) high containers at up to 30 km/hour (18.6 mph) for increased handling productivity and reduced carbon emissions.

Produced at the Terex Cranes facility in Wuerzburg, Germany, these new-generation straddle carriers combine the benefits of helping to increase DP World’s efficiency and productivity while reducing its environmental footprint at Australia’s largest container port located in Melbourne.

“DP World Australia selected our state-of-the-art carriers following an extensive evaluation process,” says Guido Luini, managing director, Terex Cranes, Wurzburg. “We’re proud to support them in their transition from earlier diesel-hydraulic models to today’s latest high-performing, reduced-emission Terex technology at West Swanson Dock, one of Australia’s busiest commercial hubs.”

As Andrew Jena, general manager, DP World, Melbourne, explains, “Fuel consumption data from our analysis on six of these machines indicated an 11% saving per hour compared to earlier diesel-hydraulic carriers. The dual benefits of increased productivity and energy efficiency will have a significant positive impact on our container handling operations as well as the environment at the Port of Melbourne.”
