BigLift delivers another three STS cranes in Savannah
BigLift has delivered another three Neo-Panamax ship-to-shore cranes to the Port of Savannah, bringing the port’s total number of cranes to 36, more than any other single terminal in North America.
The new cranes are designed by Finnish manufacturer Konecranes and will immediately undergo a commissioning process. The first new crane will go into service in approximately 12 weeks and by the end of June, all three will be loading and unloading vessels.
The transport was carried out by the company’s MC-Class vessel BigLift Barentsz and follows on a previous shipment of sister vessel BigLift Baffin, which in December last year delivered the first three cranes to the American port.
The cranes are among the largest working STS cranes in the North American ports today, towering almost 100 meters above the docks when fully raised and assembled. To deliver the giant cranes, BigLift had to pass underneath the Talmadge Memorial Bridge.
