This is the first time Motherwell Bridge will supply cranes in the West African region, according to the company.

According to the deal, the company will supply 12 of their latest generation rubber tyre gantry cranes (RTGs) to a terminal in Togo. The remaining four will be delivered to a terminal in Cameroon.

Steve Tarr, chairman of Motherwell Bridge, said, “This project will be an opportunity for us to showcase Maltese engineering expertise that could also be of interest to other sectors in the region, particularly oil and gas.”

Teams of specialised mechanical and electrical engineers will begin work in May 2014, and are expected to complete construction in six months, stated company officials.

Recently, Motherwell Bridge had also installed 12 automatic stacking cranes in a key container terminal in Abu Dhabi.
