Maher doubles its “flock” of post-Panamax cranes

Maher doubles its “flock” of post-Panamax cranes

Maher Terminals, of Elizabeth, N.J., had four new post-Panamax cranes delivered March 8, doubling the four post-Panamax cranes already on-hand.

   The cranes, built by ZPMC of China, have a 200-foot reach and a lift of 65 long tons, equivalent to two full 20-foot containers.

   Two of the cranes were unloaded over the weekend, and the last of the cranes have been unloaded over the past few days.

   This delivery brings the total number of cranes at the terminal to 21, although four older cranes will be scrapped in favor of the new. Maher is also expecting three ultra post-Panamax cranes to be delivered early this summer for their Prince Rupert container terminal in Berkeley Heights, N.J.

   Sam Crane, senior vice president of external affairs for Maher, said the new cranes are much faster and efficient, can reach across wider-beam ships, and have easier to use technology built-in for operators. Purchasing the four cranes is part of a program to expand service, he added.
