Two new specially designed New Panamax STS Cranes with lifting capacity of 65 tons and 50 tons in twin-lift mode and in single-lift mode, respectively, arrived today at the Port of Thessaloniki. With the arrival of the new equipment, the Container Terminal of the Port of Thessaloniki now has 6 STS cranes.

The new STS cranes enable the Port of Thessaloniki to directly serve main liner vessels, with a capacity of over 10,000 TEU (New Panamax) and contribute significantly to attracting new lines. Along with the expansion of Pier 6, the installation of additional STS cranes at the Container Terminal is planned, further enhancing the role of Thessaloniki as an important gateway for trade between Asia and Southeast and Central Europe.

“With the 2 new specially designed New Panamax STS cranes for the Port of Thessaloniki, with a total value of €15.7 mil. , more than 80% of the company's Mandatory Investments in equipment is completed” stressed the Executive Chairman of the BoD of ThPA S.A., Thanos Liagkos.

The new equipment substantially upgrades the services provided by the port, optimizes the container handling service levels, doubles the production capacity of the Container Terminal, and significantly improves the port's competitiveness.

“The unloading of the cranes and their installation at Pier 6 is expected to be completed within 7 days, while they are estimated to be delivered in fully functional and operational capacity in early July this year”, stated the Managing Director - CEO of ThPA S.A., Franco Nicola Cupolo.
