Conakry Terminal receives 4 new gantry cranes

(BOLLORE ) - Conakry Terminal, a subsidiary of Bolloré Ports, received 4 RTG (Rubber Tyred Gantry) cranes on Monday, 1st November 2021 at the Autonomous Port of Conakry. This next-generation equipment constitutes an addition to the other 8 models received in 2018 and 2020, bringing the total to 12 at the container terminal of the Autonomous Port of Conakry.

Entirely financed by Conakry Terminal for the sum of GNF 95,702,804,742 (including all taxes), that is €8,471,114, the acquisition of this machinery falls within the scope of the commitments made by Conakry Terminal under the concession agreement signed with the Autonomous Port of Conakry.

These gantry cranes – specialised in handling containers in port terminals – have a lifting capacity of 40 tons each. Their speed of manoeuvring and their real-time GPS positioning system allow the import containers to be made available without delay. Their arrival will not only increase storage capacity at the terminal but also increase delivery rates and reduce the time required to process goods at Conakry Terminal.

Thanks to the support of the 544 Guinean workers it employs directly on permanent contracts, Conakry Terminal contributes to the fluidity of the supply chain of Guinea and the countries of the sub- region. Each year, the company also undertakes solidarity initiatives in key sectors such as health, education and environmental protection. On this last point, it aims to reduce the carbon impact of its activities by integrating into its approach the 8 pillars of the Bolloré Ports Green Terminal label – a process validated by Bureau Veritas that covers all environmental issues.

"Despite the circumstances of the Covid-19 pandemic, Conakry Terminal is going ahead with its investment programme to support the development of the Guinean economy and provide its customers with world-class services in compliance with our contractual commitments. With this new acquisition, we now have 12 gantry cranes that will make our handling operations more fluid and improve the quality of services for our shipowners”, said Emmanuel MASSON, Managing Director of Dakar Terminal.
