Entirely financed by Conakry Terminal for the sum of GNF 95,702,804,742 (including all taxes), that is €8,471,114, the acquisition of this machinery falls within the scope of the commitments made by Conakry Terminal under the concession agreement signed with the Autonomous Port of Conakry.
These gantry cranes – specialised in handling containers in port terminals – have a lifting capacity of 40 tons each. Their speed of manoeuvring and their real-time GPS positioning system allow the import containers to be made available without delay. Their arrival will not only increase storage capacity at the terminal but also increase delivery rates and reduce the time required to process goods at Conakry Terminal.
Thanks to the support of the 544 Guinean workers it employs directly on permanent contracts, Conakry Terminal contributes to the fluidity of the supply chain of Guinea and the countries of the sub-region. Each year, the company also undertakes solidarity initiatives in key sectors such as health, education and environmental protection. On this last point, it aims to reduce the carbon impact of its activities by integrating into its approach the 8 pillars of the Bolloré Ports Green Terminal label – a process validated by Bureau Veritas that covers all environmental issues.
