Biggest Crane in Alaska Arriving at Kodiak Terminal

U.S. carrier and container terminal operator Matson, Inc. has taken delivery of a new 65-ton gantry crane to replace one half its size at the company’s Kodiak Terminal in Alaska.

Standing more than 340 feet tall at its peak with a boom spanning 164 feet, Matson’s new crane is the largest in Alaska, capable of lifting loads up to 60 feet long and weighing up to 145,000 pounds.

The crane is electrically powered crane and will use fly wheel technology to capture, store and then return power as needed.

The USD 10 million giant will run on electricity provided by the Kodiak Electric Association, which uses wind and water turbines to generate 99.9 percent of its power.
