Arrival of the cranes

New terminal equipment

Contecon Guayaquil SA (CGSA), manager and operator of the Guayaquil Container and Multipurpose Terminals (GCMT) in Ecuador, received three new quay cranes and eight rubber tired gantries (RTGs).


The container handling equipment, manufactured by Shanghai Zhenhua Port Machinery Co. of China, is the first of their type to be introduced in Ecuador. In 2007, CGSA had acquired two mobile harbor cranes (MHC) immediately after its takeover of the port. CGSA is a subsidiary of Philippine-based International Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI).
