July 6 - Petro-Sea Logistics, a joint venture between Belgium's Sea-Invest and the Ivory Coast's Petroci, has added a Grove GMK5180-1 all terrain crane to its fleet.

According to Manitowoc, Petro-Sea will use the 180-tonne capacity GMK5180-1, which features a 64 m boom and a VIAB turbo clutch, for logistics and material handling to support its oil business activities at the Port of Abidjan, the Ivory Coast.

The GMK5180-1 joins Petro-Sea's fleet which includes a Grove GMK6400 and GMK4100L-1.

Pasico Ghana, a subsidiary of Paterson Simons, supplied the crane to Petro-Sea and is providing localised technical support, as well as training and warranty options.

Paterson Simons has been a partner of Manitowoc Cranes for 40 years, and through its branches in West Africa sells, services and rents Manitowoc products.
