$11 Million for La Unión Port Operation

Port company CEPA began pricing maritime equipment to be installed in La Unión Port.

Monday, August 24, 2009

Two post-Panamax cranes are included in the equipment being priced, to be used when unloading containers from ships.

José Guillermo López Suáres is the president of CEPA, the state's port authority. He told newspaper La Prensa Gráfica: "By the end of November we will have a clearer picture regarding supply and demand, and we will make decisions then. However, we want to be prepared to act immediately, and not start thinking at that moment where to look for the equipment".
