Turkish port operator Yilport has sent two cranes (pictured above) from its Gebze Terminal in Turkey to Puerto Bolivar in Ecuador, the capital city of banana trade, as part of an adjustment in its operations.
Puerto Bolivar has strong hinterland road access and is increasing its equipment to handle more containerized and bulk cargo.
This has led to the terminal operator needing two Gottwald mobile harbor cranes at Puerto Bolivar.
The cranes set off on April 20 and will take 25 days to reach their final destination in Machala, Ecuador, as shown on the map below.
The cranes have 50 tons of lifting capacity and are able to lift 100 tons by hook.
