Ghana Ports and Harbors Authority receives Grove training in Italy
Technicians from Ghana Ports and Harbors Authority (GPHA) visited Manitowoc's facility in Niella Tanaro, Italy, to learn proactive maintenance and basic repairs on the Grove RT530E-2 rough-terrain crane. Manitowoc offers training for technicians on demand year-round from its Manitowoc Crane Care facilities around the world.

Grove Master Engineer Mirco Minoccheri taught the five-day program, which focused on how to identify and then solve issues on the rough-terrain crane and included lessons around a variety of the Grove RT530E-2 operations, including hydraulic schematics, load sensing and proportional controls, CAN-BUS data transfer, electricals and electronics and error codes interpretation.

GPHA purchased the two RT530E-2 rough terrain cranes in January 2020 and is using them to handle general cargo at the Port of Tema, the largest port in Ghana.

The RT530E-2 is a 30 t capacity crane with a 29 m full-power boom, plus an optional 7.9 m-13.7 m telescopic swingaway.
