New cranes for Transnet port

Jan 13 2012 14:53
Johannesburg - Transnet Port Terminals has bought two new cranes for its Ngqura Container Terminal in the Eastern Cape, it said on Friday.

"The R150m investment shows the commitment that Transnet has in growing the economy of this region," Transnet Port Terminals acting CEO Nosipho Damasane said.

Seventy-eight people have been hired to operate the two new Liebherr Cranes.

Once the cranes are fully commissioned by April 2012, Ngqura - also known as Coega - will have eight cranes. Transnet Port Terminals is a division of state-owned freight, logistics and transport company Transnet.
