Spotted: Big Ship Cranes Reach Prince Rupert

The expansion of Prince Rupert’s Fairview Container Terminal in Canada’s British Columbia has reached another milestone with the arrival of three Malacca-max dock gantry cranes.

The three gantry cranes entered Prince Rupert Harbour aboard the heavy load carrier ship Zhen Hua 25 on May 13.

The offloading process is expected to take several days, the Princ Rupert Port Authority said.

Each crane is equipped with a horizontal reach of 25 containers and is capable of working the largest vessels in the world, the authority said.

When the expansion project is complete in the third quarter of 2017, the capacity of Fairview Terminal will increase by half-a-million TEUs, boosting its total capacity from 850,000 to 1.35 million TEUs.

Operated by DP World (Canada) Inc., the expanded Fairview Container Terminal will include a second deep-water berth, three additional gantry cranes, and land reclamation to expand the container yard.
