We celebrate the arrival of the GM12 mobile crane, one of the largest in the world

The new acquisition, which will be operational by mid-September 2019, seeks to keep the company's mobile crane fleet up to date.

As part of the far-reaching decisions taken in recent years, Montecon, the main operator of the public areas for containers and cargo in the port of Montevideo, incorporated the GM12 mobile crane, one of the largest in the world.


With the commissioning of this new tool, crane 4, one of the oldest in the fleet, will be out of service, improving the speed and range of the crane fleet.


"With this new crane, the third one we have of the LHM800 model, equipment capable of accessing 21 rows, we ensure a better response to a simultaneous operation of two large ships. In this way, the port terminal is prepared to respond to new increases in activity, making investments in innovation and infrastructure," said Juan Olascoaga, general manager of Montecon.

The acquisition is part of the strategy "Long-range decisions" and one of them is, precisely, to have machinery and equipment suitable for the future to come.


The next stage of this permanent renovation process will be related to the optimization of the work at yard level, through new equipment.

In this sense, the following investments will be focused on RTG cranes to handle containers in that sector.
