Over more recent years larger vessels started calling at Malta Freeport who in turn continued to invest in its terminal. An international tendering call was issued for the revamping and upgrade of the quay side cranes. Our company was successful in getting this tender, together with OMG of Italy. The tender involved the revamp of 2 quay side cranes by increasing the height of the cranes by 6 meters and increasing the height of the boom by another 6 meters. This operation was engineered and certified complete by the original designers of the crane and was carried out to the satisfaction of the client. This kind of intervention to a quay side crane had never been done before internationally and we pride ourselves of the great job done on this project. We had done similar jobs though in Italy, Spain, and Algeria.
