On October 6, MultiRio’s new super-post-Panamax portainer left the Shanghai factory in China, bound for the company’s terminal in the Port of Rio de Janeiro. The equipment is expected to arrive on November 20.

Upon its arrival, MultiRio will have five portainers, in addition to the current three mobile harbor cranes (MHCs). The new equipment was designed to serve the largest ships that frequent the East coast of South America, as well as the next generations of vessels. It has a capacity of 65 tons and can lift containers 49 meters high for a horizontal distance of 67 meters.

The investment aims to increase the productivity and security of the terminal.
