New, bigger cranes for Limassol port

Limassol port container terminal operator Eurogate said Tuesday it has taken delivery of two new gantry cranes that will enable the company to handle the biggest cargo ships worldwide.

Eurogate said the Super Post – Panamax cranes arrived on Tuesday and would be put in operation as soon as possible.

The company’s director, Giorgos Pouros, said the cranes will allow the company to offer better service since they can handle the largest ships in the world.

The gantries were manufactured in Italy and can serve ships with the capacity of carrying 23 rows of containers across their deck. Their acquisition is part of a €30m investment package.
