Three STS cranes, which arrived at Poland’s Deepwater Container Terminal Gdansk in May, are now erected and positioned on the crane rails.
A total of five STS cranes are intended for the new deepwater berth at the terminal. The components of the remaining two cranes will be delivered in August, according to DCT Gdansk.
The cranes of T2 terminal have a height of 130 meters (boom up) and 89 meters (boom down). With the outreach of 25 rows of containers, the new cranes will be able to handle the largest boxships in the world.
The infrastructure works are expected to be completed in August and the berth will be fully operational at the end of this year, DCT Gdansk said.
