Ctg Port’s container handling to be more speedier10 May 2022
Chattogram Bureau :
Two state-of-the-art key Gantry Cranes (QGC) and three Rubber Tyred Gantry (RTG) cranes for fast and safe container handling have been added to the fleet of premier seaports of the country. This will speed up container handling at Chittagong port, port officials and users said.
The Zen Hua 12, which was carrying these containers handling equipment, was brought to berth No 5 of the port’s New Mooring Container Terminal by special arrangements with the help of two powerful tugboats recently.
Port Secretary Omar Farooq said that two new QGCs and three RTGs made in China have arrived at the port.
After unloading, fitting and trial, these will go into operation as soon as possible. This will speed up the handling of ships and containers in the port.
