The company has acquired the mobile, electric hydraulic crane Mansinen 300 ER, which is currently the largest of its kind in the Baltic ports. Construction of a new 3,200 square meter covered warehouse is also coming to an end, and a new open 8000 square meter storage yard for all types of cargo will be installed the terminal by the end of July.

The investment will increase the terminal’s handling capacity to 2.5 million tons of various cargo per year, and grain handling capacity will double.

“With the arrival of this equipment, we are starting a new phase in the operation of the terminal. The new hydraulic crane is three times faster when compared to cable equipment of this type and can handle about 16,000 tons of bulk cargo per day. This is the main advantage. In addition, the loader is fully electric, so it does not pollute nature at all and works quietly”, says Julius Kiršis, the CEO of Malkų įlankos terminalas.

The crane purchased by the company is one of the largest cranes produced in the world that can load cargo onto Panamax-type vessels and the only such machine in the Baltic ports. Boom length – 38 meters, cargo handling capabilities – 1,300 t/h.
