The company is preparing the documents to tender a service for mobile cranes for unloading goods at the port.

Friday, July 7, 2017

Authorities at Empresa Portuaria Quetzal expect the bidding process to take about six months. The new contractor will replace Servicios Bayside, whose contract expires in May 2018.
The president of the Board of Directors of the EPQ, Bernardo López, explained that "... the contract has been in force since 2001 and its value is $9.9 million."
Elperiodico.com.gt reports that "... López said yesterday during a citation by the National Unity of Hope (UNE) bench, that after the ceremony for the award, the cranes will be made according to the weight and elevation required. They are formulating terms and conditions because the cranes have technical specifications versus the dock, that is in the process that we are in now'."
