Eukor delivers LRV in Manila
The Port of Manila recently took delivery of eight light rail vehicles (LRV). Citadel Shipping, the local ship agent of the ro-ro shipping company Eukor, organised the transport with the vessel "MV Morning Margareta". It is the seventh LRV delivery for the Philippines’ light rail transit (LRT) project this year.
To date, 48 LRVs from Spain and Mexico have arrived to be used for the existing system and Cavite extension project of the light rail transit line 1. Another 72 LRVs are scheduled for delivery until June 2022.
A fully owned subsidiary of International Container Terminal Services, (ICTSI) at the Port of Manila, the Manila Harbour Centre Port Services (MHCPSI), which organised the unloading, is a multipurpose terminal that specialises in handling project cargo. The company started commercial operations in December 2020 under a permit issued by the Philippine Ports Authority. (sh)
