Yilport invests in Puerto Quetzal

Yilport has signed a contract with Puerto Quetzal, Guatemala that will see the Turkish operator take a 55 percent share in the port and handle the multipurpose quay operations.

Yilport has already begun investing in the port with the acquisition of four Liebherr LHM 600 mobile harbour cranes. 

Capable of lifting up to 208 tonnes and featuring an outreach of up to 58 m, Yilport said the cranes are capable of handling containers, bulk cargoes, heavy lifts and project cargo. 

Two of the units are expected to arrive at Puerto Quetzal in November, while the remaining two cranes will be delivered in the first half of 2019. 

The agreement with Puerto Quetzal adds to Yilport’s network of 20 operated ports around the world, and represents its third terminal in the Latin American region. Located 102 km from Guatemala City, Puerto Quetzal features an 820 m-long berth with a draft of 11 m.
