Noatum, through its subsidiary Noatum Terminals, dedicated to the management of port concessions and infrastructures and after obtaining the approval of the respective boards of directors and its partner Algeposa, has completed the acquisition of four mobile cranes for its port terminals in Castellón, Sagunto and Tarragona – January 11, 2022 These teams, with the capacity to handle all types of cargo, have the latest technology
available and will provide great operational advantages to their respective ports. They also introduce improvements that minimize the environmental impact and reduce energy consumption. The responsibility of Noatum Terminals and also of Algeposa, as port operators in these three key ports in the Mediterranean, reinforces the commitment of both shareholders with the continuous improvement of all the services they offer as well as the generation of increasingly efficient value propositions. to all the industries of its port hinterlands. Two of these cranes will be assigned to Noatum Terminal Sagunto. These are two units of the LHM420 Pactronic model, with a maximum lifting capacity of 124 tons, which will allow an improvement in productivity of up to 38 containers per hour. This model is also capable of handling bulk goods and all types of general merchandise and project cargo. A third, model LHM420, will be assigned to Noatum Terminal Tarragona, a facility specializing in port operations for agri-food bulk, one of the most important traffics in the Tarragona area. The crane will be positioned on the Castilla dock to improve the productivity of the automated installation that the company manages on that dock. The fourth crane will be operated at Noatum Terminal Castellón, a multipurpose terminal that offers comprehensive services for containerized cargo, other unitized cargo and project cargo, as well as solid and liquid bulk. The crane has been acquired to optimize operational flows and the growing increase in traffic volumes through the concessions that Noatum has in the docks of the North Basin. The new unit, model LHM550, has a load capacity of 144 tons and a reach of 54 meters; it is optimized for bulk on Capesize class vessels, in addition to container handling and New-Panamax class vessels. The first crane already arrived at the port on January 5 on board the ship Mv Hoogvliet and will be operational at the Sagunto terminal shortly. The other three units will arrive in the coming months. The increase in the capacity of the terminals benefited by this important investment and commitment is the result of the commitment of Noatum and Algeposa to offer state-of-the-art equipment to its customer base and thus achieve improvements in operating performance and greater energy efficiency. This investment in equipment for the terminals represents an increase in their current operating capacity, considering that they already have four mobile and six electric cranes in Sagunto, four mobile cranes and two container ships in Castellón, and two mobile cranes in Tarragona.
