A total of three Ship To Shore (STS) gantry cranes were on Tuesday the 11th of January  safely delivered to the Port of Mombasa in readiness for start of operations at the newly constructed berth 22.
The Kenya Ports Authority now has a complement of sixteen (16) gantry cranes serving seven container berths at the port.
The gantry cranes which were built in Japan at a total cost of 3.3 billion will primarily be utilized for loading and offloading cargo from the vessel to the quayside at a speed of 40 moves per hour.
KPA says the modern equipment will further improve efficiency and boost productivity of the port whose capacity has been increased by a further 550,000 TEUs annually following the completion of the new berth.
