YILPORT orders 24 cranes for Puerto Bolivar

Three equipment shipments are part of a modernization and expansion project at Ecuador’s first deep-sea port.

 
   As part of its modernization and expansion project, YILPORT Puerto Bolivar in Ecuador has ordered six ship-to-shore (STS) cranes and 18 electrified rubber-tired gantry (E-RTG) cranes from Mitsui E&S Machinery Co.
   The cranes will be delivered in three shipments to support increasing volumes and modernization of Puerto Bolivar, the first deep-sea terminal in Ecuador. In the first phase, two STS cranes and six RTG cranes are expected to be delivered in the last quarter of 2019. The second and third deliveries will be shipped in the first half of 2020.
   “When we acquired YILPORT Puerto Bolivar, we committed to bringing state-of-the-art technology, infrastructure and equipment to Ecuador,” said Robert Yuksel Yildirim, chairman of YILPORT Holding.
   The first phase of dredging work at Puerto Bolivar was completed at the end of May. The new STS and RTG cranes will enable the port to handle 22,000-TEU ultra-large containerships. The second dredging phase will be completed before the delivery of the new equipment, and the terminal will reach 17 meters of draft below both berth and channel.
   

Ocean carriers want to keep transpacific prices as high as possible during BCO contract negotiations. This has been successful, with an increase in blank sailings enabling an April 1 GRI. While space is currently reasonably tight and the new rates are still holding, another GRI is unlikely to stick without more blank sailings.

The Port of Virginia handled 240,035 TEUs in March, which was its second-busiest March despite a 4.8 percent year-over-year decrease.
