Brussels, 8 April 2021

Yilport Puerto Bolívar has launched its latest ship-to-shore (STS) and rubber-tyred-gantry (RTG) cranes as the construction of its New Berth #6.

In a statement, the terminal operator said the new cranes are the first batch of three expected deliveries scheduled for 2021. It has made an investment of approximately $22 million as part of the First Phase of the Expansion and Modernisation Project of the Puerto Bolivar Terminal.

The terminal operator will include other state-of-the-art equipment and software that will allow the Yilport Puerto Bolívar terminal to reach new capacities and increase its efficiency and capacity.

The expansion, which will include New Berth #6, will increase the terminal’s capacity by an additional 450m of pier space. The first section is estimated to be operational by mid-2022.
