PortMiami has purchased four additional Super Post-Panamax cranes with the capacity to handle the new generation of cargo vessels that will be traversing the expanded Panama Canal. The new cranes, which began operating at the end of 2013, bring the Port's Super Post-Panamax crane total to 6 and overall crane total to 13.
The cranes can handle megaships with cargo capacities of over 10,000 TEUs and allow the Port to service these larger ships with increased speed and efficiency. They have a lift capacity of 100 tons under the cargo beam, an outreach of 223 feet, and can handle ships up to 23 containers wide. In addition, the cranes can work stacks up to nine containers high on-deck.
Environmentally-friendly Gantry Cranes
PortMiami has completed the last phase of its gantry cranes electrification project. The newly electrified cranes provide an emissions-free operation, reducing maintenance costs and eliminating the use of diesel fuels.
