Piraeus Port increases its capacity

Piraeus Port Authority (PPA) has announced several investments to upgrade the infrastructure of Pier I of the Port of Piraeus and increase its capacity by 30% to 1.3 million TEU per year.

The PPA has ordered five electric powered rubber tyred gantry cranes (E-RTG), which will be installed at Pier I. The new E-RTGs are more environmentally friendly than conventional cranes, according to the port authority, and their use will improve the environmental footprint of the Greek port.
