Contecon Guayaquil SA, manager and operator of the Guayaquil Container and Multipurpose Terminals in Ecuador, recently took in delivery of three new quay cranes and eight rubber tired gantries. The new container handling equipment, manufactured by Shanghai Zhenhua Port Machinery Co. of China, is the first of their type to be introduced in Ecuador, heralding a new era of modern port operations in the country. In 2007, CGSA acquired two mobile harbor cranes immediately after its takeover of the port. CGSA is a subsidiary of Philippine-based International Container Terminal Services Inc., a leading developer of international ports and terminals with a global port network spanning 11 countries in four continents. ICTSI is on its 20th year of operation, and continues to pursue container terminal opportunities around the world.
