PSA Voltri-Prà Terminal Celebrates Crane Inauguration
Danny Gill

PSA Voltri-Prà Terminal in Italy recently held a ceremony to celebrate the inauguration of the first four new Gooseneck quay cranes.

The new cranes are part of a big investment plan worth 250 million euros that is currently being rolled out. With these investments, PSA Voltri-Prà will become the only terminal operator in the North Tyrrhenian region able to serve multiple mega-vessels simultaneously. The new cranes have an outreach of 53 meters or up to 25 containers wide and are equipped with the latest technology and safety devices. The second batch of four cranes is expected to arrive at the start of 2017. When the investment project is fully completed, PSA Voltri-Prà Terminal will have an annual handling capacity of two million TEU.

VOLTRI-PRÀ

Mr Tan Chong Meng, Group CEO of PSA International said, “With this ceremony we celebrate the start of a new era for PSA Voltri-Prà. We believe that the bold investment program we have put in place will strengthen the position of the terminal as the preferred gateway for shipping lines serving the vast hinterland of Southern and Continental Europe and beyond. By working alongside our customers, partners and stakeholders, we will strive to create more years of success for the Port of Genoa.”

Mr Giuseppe Danesi, Managing Director of PSA Voltri-Prà, said, “The investment in the upgrading of the PSA Voltri-Prà facilities as well as in the new equipment is strategically important for our future. It is a clear demonstration of the PSA commitment to transform the Terminal in Genoa into a key gateway. The new cranes are the first tangible demonstration of this project. I would like to thank our staff and unions for their contributions and dedication in this transformation journey. We are confident that with the continued support from our staff, unions and the Genoa Port Authority, we will manage to achieve our ambitious goals and secure the future of our terminal and our people.”
