APM Terminals Installs Four New Cranes


Four new ZPMC container cranes have been added to APM Terminals
APM Terminals has taken delivery of four new ZPMC container cranes. The super-post-Panamax cranes are all electric and able to serve the largest vessels afloat, with a reach of 22 containers across. This brings the total number of cranes to 15.

APM Terminals said it has made several investments at its facility in partnership with The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, including the addition of 84 acres to its site, bringing the total footprint to 350 acres and completion of an additional 1,500 feet of wharf with over 6,000 feet of wharf, 4,800 of which is deep water. It currently has three 50-foot berths and one 45-foot berth. Plans are on the table to deepen one additional berth to 50 feet.

The terminal also recently added two rubber-tire gantry cranes to its fleet, bringing its total to 32.

Several of the new RTGs use ultra-lowsulfur diesel fuel, thus minimizing their environmental impact through reduced emissions.

APM Terminals said it also plans to invest in new technology for its gate, along with other yard and marine improvements scheduled to be completed by 2010.
