Petro-Sea Logistics, a joint venture between Belgium’s Sea-Invest and Ivory Coast’s Petroci, added one more Grove all-terrain crane, GMK5180-1 to its fleet. The 180 t GMK5180-1 features a 64 m boom and a VIAB turbo clutch that enables wear-free starting and braking. The new addition joins the company’s Grove GMK6400 and GMK4100L-1, all recently introduced Grove models, which reflects the Petro-Sea Logistics’ impression of Grove’s new all-terrain cranes and their improved quality. The joint venture will use the crane for logistics and material handling to support its oil business activities at the Port of Abidjan.
Pasico Ghana, a subsidiary in the Paterson Simons network, supplied the crane to the joint venture and is providing it with localised technical support, as well as extensive training and warranty options.
“Pasico Ghana has been extremely supportive of Petro-Sea Logistics over the past year, providing them with a whole range of assistance and services,” said Paul Rogers, Manitowoc Sales Director for Middle East and Africa. “The combination of Grove quality and Pasico Ghana support is why the joint venture chooses Grove, and we are committed to providing them with the best service on the market,” he added.
