Turkish port operator Yilport Holding has expanded its terminal portfolio with a 55 percent share in Guatemala’s largest Pacific Ocean port, Puerto Quetzal.

Under the agreement, which was signed between the port authority and Yilport, the company took over the multi-purpose quay operations in the terminal as of October 18, 2018.

Puerto Quetzal, able to accommodate vessels up to Panamax size, is the 21st port operated by Yilport Holding.

The terminal in which general cargo, container, liquid cargo, and Ro-Ro handled serves as a multipurpose terminal with its 820m long main berth and 11 meters draft by offering space for four vessels at the same time.

Yilport has already started investing to Puerto Quetzal with 4 Liebherr Mobile Harbor Cranes of LHM 600 specially designed to load and unload up to super new-Panamax-sized vessels. The first two cranes were set to arrive at Puerto Quetzal in November, while the other two are expected to be delivered in the first half of 2019.
