Two Post Panamax Cranes are on their way to Port Freeport.
The Gantry cranes, departed from Shanghai on May 7, are expected to arrive at Port Freeport by the end of July, Executive Port Director/CEO Glenn Carlson said.
Being approximately 80 feet wide each, both cranes will occupy a portion of Berth 7 at Velasco Terminal.
The cranes, which can lift up to 75 tons, will stand just less than 300 feet from the ground.
“These cranes will allow the Port to continue to support our current container carrier customers through increased marine productivity and to attract new services opening new markets from Port Freeport for the petrochemical industry in the Brazoria County region,” said Carlson.
