Kenya Ports Authority gets nod to import cranes

21 October 2013, 21:44

Nairobi - The Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) a parastatal , which operates the seaports on the Indian ocean coastline has been given the go-ahead with its cargo handling modernisation project. This means that the state corporation can secure three ship-to-shore gantry cranes, Standard Digital reports.

The purchasing of the cranes, came to a halt after one of the construction firms raised an issue with regards to the manner in which the tender process was handled. The KPA was formed in 1978, and is located in Mombasa. The authority is also in charge of eight other ports in the country.  The cranes , which are valued at Sh2.4 billion were presumed to speed up the process of loading and offloading cargo at the port. 

The Public Procurement Administrative Review Board (PPARB) was called on by the Kocks Kranes GMBH, a German firm who found an irregularity in the manner in which the tender was awarded to Irish company M/S Liebherr Container Cranes.
