First straddle carrier with Tier 4 final compliant engines for the US
Würzburg, Germany, 8 June 2015 – Terex Port Solutions (TPS) has received an order from Port Newark Container Terminal LLC (PNCT), Newark, New Jersey, a 50/50 joint-venture between Ports America and Terminal Investment Limited (TIL), for 20 new Terex® straddle carriers. The equipment will be in service by the end of July 2015, increasing the total number of Terex machines delivered to this terminal operator to 118. These new straddle carriers will be equipped with eco-friendly diesel-electric drives and winter packages for enhanced operation, even in extremely cold conditions. The order includes comprehensive training of PNCT service staff.

“With the latest generation of machines from TPS, we plan to significantly increase the productivity and reliability of our operations and reduce the power consumption and pollutant emissions of our container terminal the long term,” says Scott Schoenfeld, Chief Operating Officer at PNCT. The twelve new Terex N SC 634 E straddle carriers for the handling of 1-over-2 high-cube containers are mainly used for the service between container cranes and stackyard, the eight higher Terex N SC 644 E straddle carriers with a stacking capacity of 1-over-3 high-cube containers are intended mainly for management of the container stackyard.

PNCT in the USA pioneering the eco-friendly operation of straddle carriers The 20 new container handling machines are the first straddle carriers with diesel engines supplied to the USA which comply with the requirements of the EPA Tier 4 final (EU Stage IV) emissions standard. “PNCT is pioneering eco-friendly, low-emission container handling in the USA with this investment in state-of-the-art technology”, comments Schoenfeld on the purchase of the N SC 634 E and N SC 644 E straddle carriers. Lutz Wächter, General Manager of the TPS site at Würzburg, adds: “With this delivery to our longstanding customer PNCT, who we have been supplying continuously since the year 2000, the number of Terex straddle carriers sold to the US and Europe complying with the EPA Tier 4 final (EU Stage IV) standard has reached a total of 86 machines. This makes TPS the supplier in the market with the greatest experience of this drive technology for straddle carriers.”

Local service increases availability of straddle carrier fleet In addition to its existing permanent service center for straddle carriers in the New Jersey area, TPS will provide its customer with a standby service technician from TPS in Würzburg for a period of 24 months. “By taking this step, we are satisfying a special request from PNCT and, in this way, aim to achieve higher availability of the straddle carrier fleet,” explains Joe Krider, Vice President Supra Region Americas, Terex Port Solutions.

Terex® N SC 644 E straddle carriers with diesel-electric drive operated in a German container terminal. Eight similar machines are going to be supplied to Port Newark Container Terminal LLC (PNCT), USA.
15 additional machines equipped with Terex® twin-lift spreaders to be delivered at the beginning of 2015
Würzburg, Germany, 16 December 2014 – After the first order in April this year for 15 dieselelectric Terex® N SC 634 E straddle carriers, Terex Port Solutions (TPS) has received a follow-up order from Eurogate Container Terminal Hamburg GmbH (Eurogate) for 15 additional machines of the same type. The straddle carriers will be delivered to Eurogate at the start of 2015 and will join an extensive fleet of Terex straddle carriers there. All new machines can stack 9’6’’ high-cube containers 1-over-2. In the terminal they will replace machines with outdated technology. The 30 straddle carriers are fitted with Terex® N TS 62 F twin-lift spreaders and feature a lifting capacity of up to 60 t. These carriers will help Eurogate increase the performance, availability and efficiency of its fleet in the long term, and to reduce environmental impact considerably.

Spreaders completely integrated into the straddle carriers Terex straddle carriers and Terex spreaders together form an efficient system. The spreader functions, like those of the straddle carriers, are controlled by the fully integrated CAN bus control system. This design reduces interfaces, making the system of straddle carriers simpler, more robust and reliable. In addition, the designers focused on service-friendly features for the spreader. The telescopic arms move in maintenance-free guides and are no longer mechanically locked, but hydraulically braced. This limits damage in the event that a collision should occur. The spreader design also allows all maintenance points and components to be accessed quickly and easily, reducing operating costs. Since the spreaders of the new straddle carriers for Eurogate will be also equipped with extensive sensorics developed by TPS, they can be landed on containers quietly. For operators of container terminals this feature, along with the increased efficiency thanks to the use of sensorics, is a major criterion in the purchase decision.

Impressive overall package including on-site service According to Peter Zielinski, Managing Director at Eurogate, the spreaders, series-manufactured since 2013, and their interplay with the straddle carriers were a major factor in the decision to opt for TPS: “Straddle carriers and spreaders form a powerful package that impressed us.” Extensive services are also part of the scope of delivery. Eurogate benefits from the proximity of TPS technicians to the customer and equipment, as Zielinski explains: “A TPS service center is located directly on our terminal premises and the service technicians are always available via the hotline. This helps us to maintain the availability of all Terex straddle carriers at our terminal.”

More than 2,600 straddle carriers and sprinter carriers since 1968 Straddle carriers, as well as Terex sprinter carriers used exclusively for transporting containers to the stackyard, have been a success story at TPS for almost half a century. TPS has manufactured more than 2,600 of the machines since 1968; the 1,000th diesel-electric straddle carrier left the plant in Würzburg in July 2014. The machines for Eurogate also have diesel-electric drives, whereby two machines in the most recent delivery are designed as N SC 634 EECO. These straddle carriers are fitted with a hybrid drive system, which is also equipped with a short-term energy storage unit in addition to the diesel generator. The system will help Eurogate to continue to reduce its fuel consumption and exhaust emissions significantly.

Landmark machine goes to long-time customer North Sea Terminal Bremerhaven GmbH & Co
Würzburg, Germany, 11 July, 2014 – A ceremony today marked the departure of the 1,000th diesel-electric straddle carrier from the Terex Port Solutions (TPS) facility in Würzburg. The celebration was attended by the straddle carrier’s new owner as well as the Terex team members who built the machine. The landmark machine is going to long-time customer North Sea Terminal Bremerhaven GmbH & Co (NTB) as part of an order comprising a total of more than 30 Terex® N SC 644 E straddle carriers. The machines feature a lifting capacity of up to 60 t under spreader and can stack 9'6" high-cube containers 1-over-3. They will be used in the NTB terminal located directly on the North Sea, where they will strengthen an existing large fleet of more than 75 Terex straddle carriers.
 
Efficient machines create lasting competitive advantages Since 1999, NTB has used Terex straddle carriers in its terminal, which handled approximately 3.3 million TEU in 2013. The positive operating experiences during this time contributed to NTB’s continued use of Terex straddle carriers, according to Jan Gelderland, Managing Director of NTB, who said on delivery: “These highly efficient straddle carriers have supported us in the terminal, founded in 1998, almost from the start. And thanks to their ease of operation, good performance and reliability, they provide lasting competitive advantages. We are therefore delighted to welcome a genuine landmark machine from Würzburg to our fleet.” The fact that TPS further developed the machines to meet specific application requirements together with NTB has also been a crucial factor in the many years of working together, according to Gelderland.

Technology from TPS Würzburg with a first-class global reputation Straddle carriers have been manufactured in Würzburg since 1968, as Lutz Waechter, General Manager of the TPS location, explained during the handover: “The first units, at the time still operated with diesel-mechanical drives, came onto the market under the brand name Peiner. The machines were later sold globally under the Noell brand and now Terex.” Over the years, the straddle carriers have gained a first-class reputation around the globe with approximately 2,600 straddle carriers and sprinter carriers, the latter used solely for transporting containers to the stackyard, having left the Franconian plant. This plant has also developed into a center of excellence for both straddle carriers and sprinter carriers: “Products from our location have an outstanding reputation. They also stand for the TPS strategy of developing innovative technologies for comprehensive system solutions in the port business, building on the rich legacy of its historic brands including Noell,” says Waechter.

Global player and one of the biggest employers in the region The plant in Würzburg became part of Terex in 2009 and later joined Terex Port Solutions when it was formed in 2012 following the acquisition of Gottwald Port Technology. According to Waechter, this started an important chapter in the now 190-year history of success: “In 1824, Johann Matthias Noell opened his forge in Würzburg. We are now a global player with our machines supplied to customers all over the world.” The company still sees itself as having its roots in the Lower Franconia region, where TPS with its approximately 400 team members is one of the major employers. Most of the team members at TPS in Würzburg enjoyed taking a close look today at “their” landmark machine which, according to Waechter, is exemplary for TPS: “Our straddle carriers epitomize our aspiration to develop alongside our customers so that we can shape the market together.”
