The 12 Straddle Carriers are gradually delivered assembled to the premises of ThPA S.A. They were acquired on the initiative of the new Administration as part of the investments in equipment announced by ThPA S.A. after the Company's takeover by the new investors.
This equipment purchased by Konecranes Noell is expected to substantially improve the productivity of the Container Terminal (C.T.) and update the provided services.
This new equipment has the ability to stack containers at 3 levels in height and is expected to make a decisive contribution in the success of the Plan for the stacking of containers to be exported within the C.T., a project that will substantially change the level of container handling in the Port.
ThPA S.A. continues, in an organized and consistent manner, the execution of its Investment Program, aspiring to realize its strategic goal, i.e. to make the Port of Thessaloniki a top port in terms of both service and technological equipment, in SE Europe and the Balkan area.
