    January 26, 2022 - CE Noticias Financieras


      The port terminal of Puerto Bolivar, located in the province of El Oro, received 11 RTG cranes to enhance its operations.

      The Undersecretariat of Ports informed that the arrival of the 11 cranes "will optimize container loading and unloading times".

      The acquisition responds to one of the main objectives outlined by the public-private alliance between the manager Yilport and the Ecuadorian government: to equip the port with high technology and quality machinery, with a view to positioning it as one of the most competitive in the southern part of the country.

      So far, the port has 17 RTG cranes, two Ship To Shore (STS) container cranes and two mobile cranes. In order to comply with the equipment schedule, an additional RTG crane and four STS cranes are expected to be delivered by 2022.

      We are working on the modernization of the #PuertoBolívar Maritime Terminal.

      "Undoubtedly, the port operation (export/import) of bananas, shrimp, minerals and products coming from the Northern zone of Peru and, which are mobilized from this Port, benefit from the modern equipment, as it raises the competitiveness of the port and as a result opens the doors to trade for the province and the country, placing Ecuador on par with international port growth," said the Minister of Transportation and Public Works, Marcelo Cabrera, during the arrival event on January 25.

      What effect can the repowering of Puerto Bolívar have on the national port system?

      Alfredo Jurado, general manager of Yilport, indicated that this is the second of three crane shipments scheduled in the first phase of the terminal modernization project. Additionally, the construction of pier No. 6 is 19% complete.

      The Huascachaca wind farm, located in San Sebastián de Yuluc in the province of Loja, is being executed with an investment of $90 million financed with resources from the Banco del Estado de Ecuador and with Elecaustro's own funds, an entity attached to the Ministry of Energy and Non-Renewable Natural Resources.

      The project is 80% complete and is expected to start operations in the first half of 2022. Each wind turbine has a power of 3.571 megawatts and weighs 600 tons and will convert wind power into electric energy through the rotation of its blades at different speeds. (I)
