The Official Word on Damage to Crane in Port of PE


The TNPA released this brief statement this afternoon:
Port Elizabeth experienced winds in excess of 50 knots per hour on Tuesday morning. This resulted in the damage of a Transnet Port Terminals ship–to–shore crane on the quayside.
No employees were injured. The Engineering team is currently assessing the extent of the damage however, the crane has been secured. The Port Elizabeth Container Terminal is currently wind bound.
A business continuity plan has been implemented in an effort to limit any further impact on operations.
