Assembly of the crane sections, following their arrival from Dusseldorf, Germany is now complete.

With a capacity of up to 125 tonnes and a double winch configuration, it joins a fleet of seven existing port cranes from with lift capacities ranging from 80 to 200 tonnes, and is expected to enhance Multi Service Terminal’s appeal for companies moving breakbulk and in particular project cargo, said Multi Service chief executive, Paolo Dello Iacono.
