An elevating experience for Adra

ADRA port has a new gantry crane.
Costing roughly €700,000, this was financed by Andalucia’s Public Works and Infrastructure department via the regional ports’ authority, Puertos de Andalucia.
Adra’s mayor Manuel Cortes recently visited the port to see the new equipment, which he explained would improve services for the local fishing fleet as well as the pleasure craft that use the port.
“The change of regional government has suited our municipality very well, because the Junta is making big investments, especially at the port,” Cortes said.
Renewing the crane was essential in providing the fishing sector with more resources, the mayor added, pointing out that everybody benefited when regional and local governments collaborated.
As the crane can lift boats of 150 tons it will be of great use to the fishing fleet that uses the Adra and Motril ports, Cortes said.
Puertos de Andalucia is currently concentrating on modernising Adra’s dry dock facilities and some months ago acquired a forklift for moving port items, cleaning and maintenance.
Next acquisition will be a lifting platform for use when repairing or working on boats that are in dry dock.
