An unusual ship carrying an unusual cargoon Tuesday. The 35 heavy load carriers secured to the deck of Jen Hua were three huge container cranes bound for the port’s international container terminal.
Purchased for $ 30 million from Shanghai-based ZPM by Steering Services of America, which manages the ship’s ups and downs at the port, the crane will be the highest ever at the port with a height of 174 feet above the port. 225 feet (in standard container terms, which is 14 containers high and 24 containers wide) reach the deck of the ship. The crane will be lowered through the rail directly to the dock, damaging the expectations of anyone hoping to see one crane lift the other.
Jane Hua 35, arrived in San Francisco Bay on WednesdayJust after 8 am and then under P.T. After a while. Although the crane traveled across the Pacific Ocean in raised positions, the boom was lowered just offshore to fit under the bridges.
In a statement, SSA Containers President Edward Dennike said large cranes are needed at the country’s eighth busiest container port to handle the giant ships that use it (so far the caller at MSC Anna Oakland in April) Was the largest container ship). To make room for the new crane, three old cranes will be removed.
“Taller cranes are needed to efficiently handle cargo arriving on large container ships,” Deineck said. “This new infrastructure is a commitment to the port that we will continue our maritime business well into Oakland in the future.”
Now I want the three cranes Frazier, Niles and Marty to name Port.
