We are honoured to announce the contract award for the delivery of 28 Terex Straddle Carriers Noell SC644 E, diesel-electric units in 4-high version, to Transnet Port Terminals, Durban Container Terminal in South Africa.
The ordered Terex Straddle Carriers will be handed over to our customer in Durban from September through December 2011, while the contract contains as well an option for 22 additional units with the same configuration to be supplied to Transnet in 2012 and 2013. Further, Terex Noell has contractually agreed to organize comprehensive training sessions taking place in Germany and in South Africa for Transnet’s staff. These intensive trainings are meant to bring the highly innovative Noell diesel-electric technology close to Transnet’s operation and service personnel, which is a completely new Straddle Carrier generation for them. Additional measures under a comprehensive CSDP Program have been agreed as well.
The contract signing ceremony took place on the 30th June 2011, where we have been pleased to welcome Mr. Brian Molefe (middle of picture), Group Chief Executive Officer Transnet, and Mr. Karl Socikwa (right-hand side), Chief Executive Officer Transnet Port Terminals, in Germany.

WESTPORT, CT, July 27, 2009 –Terex Corporation (NYSE: TEX) today announced that it has completed the acquisition of the port equipment businesses of Fantuzzi Industries S.a.r.l and Noell Crane for net consideration of approximately €155 million.

The existing Terex reach stacker product line will be joined by the Fantuzzi product range that includes Noell branded straddle carriers, both Fantuzzi and Noell branded rail and rubber tired gantry cranes, mobile harbor cranes, ship-to-shore cranes, and reach stackers and forklift trucks designed to improve port productivity and throughput.
