New container cranes are on their way
|Zhen Hua 28, the vessel carrying our four new super-post-Panamax cranes, departed Shanghai, China, in January and is on its way to our South Harbor. The ship has made roughly one-third of its journey so far. They’re expected to arrive at Port of Tacoma in a few weeks.
Once they’re here, the cranes will be installed at Pier 4 that’s currently under construction at Husky Terminal. The Pier 4 reconfiguration included the alignment with an adjacent pier to create one contiguous berth capable of serving two 18,000-TEU container ships. The improvements will support larger container cranes and vessels.
