Reinforcing Mexico’s Ports

Hutchison Port Holdings (HPH), part of Hong Kong-based conglomerate Hutchison Whampoa, is investing over 15 million usd in three mobile harbor cranes to reinforce ports on Mexico’s Pacific coast. HPH’s Lázaro Cárdenas multipurpose terminal will receive two cranes, each with a capacity of over 100 tons, while the third crane will operate at the Manzanillo International Terminal. In September 2012, HPH Mexico invested 15 million usd to upgrade the infrastructure at Manzanillo with eight rubber-tyred gantry cranes with a capacity of up to 40 tons each.
