Two Super Post-Panamax cranes arrive at Limassol port

Two Super Post-Panamax cranes bought by Eurogate arrived at Limassol port on Tuesday morning, as the operator of the container terminal moves to upgrade its infrastructure and the service offered.

The cranes were built in Italy and can service the world’s biggest ships, it said adding that their acquisition is part of Eurogate’s €30m investment programme.
