In News by Alisa Evans

Paterson Simons premium ports and terminals aftermarket support has resulted in Konecranes Lift trucks and Terberg Tractors becoming the number 1 brands in Nigeria for mobile container handling equipment.

2020 saw major investments in cargo handling equipment in Nigeria with new Konecranes reach stackers, empty container handlers, heavy lift forklifts and Terberg tractors joining what is already the largest fleet of mobile cargo handling equipment in the country.

Recent deliveries of mobile container handling equipment to major terminal operators in Nigeria took place against a background of major new investment in the port sector as Nigeria seeks to increase cargo handling capacities in both Apapa and Tin Can ports in the Lagos area. This is along with major improvements to facilities through the Eastern Corridor via Onne Port.

These investments included the largest single reach stacker delivery in Nigeria of recent times in terms of units delivered. The ongoing premium service support that Paterson Simons offers was one of the key selection criteria for the machines. Paterson Simons provides commissioning, operator familiarisation, warranty support and ongoing service support for Konecranes and Terberg in Nigeria.

With new deliveries stretching from Lagos to Onne Oil and Gas Freezone, Paterson Simons is supporting customers across Nigeria.

Ten of the new reach stackers were the Konecranes Liftace SMV 4532 TCE5s. All the reach stackers have been equipped with Cummins engines, a new OPTIMA cabin for outstanding visibility and comfort, which are quality core components for high stability, safe handling and long-lasting performance. Safety is enhanced even further with semi-automatic fire suppression systems, an essential feature in the demanding working conditions in which the lift trucks will operate.

With the continued aftermarket support from Paterson Simons, Konecranes Lift trucks and Terberg Tractors are now the number 1 brands in Nigeria for mobile container handling equipment!

“The excitement brought on by the recent plant deliveries to Nigeria is exhilarating and further cements the name of Paterson Simons Nigeria as the premier service provider for Port Handling equipment in Nigeria” – Kolawole Dosunmu, Executive Director, Paterson Simons Nigeria.
