Two super-post panamax gantry cranes for KAOCT

KAOCT in Kaohsiung port

The crane procurement is part of a service enhancement project to expand KAOCT’s capabilities. Currently, there are six post panamax gantry cranes in operation, two of which will be replaced by the new ones with 22 rows outreach and they are expected to be in operation by July, 2012, enabling KAOCT to handle two 10,000 TEU+ mega container vessels at the same time.   

Along with this new adjustment, KAOCT’s 680 meter long berth will also be extended with an additional 75m length in order to service two mega vessels berthed together.

It is estimated that the new cranes will increase KAOCT’s productivity by 8-10 % and with the higher operational efficiency, it will also help shorten vessel berthing hours for bunker savings and reduce carbon emissions.

Hong Kong-based ship and terminal operator OOCL announced that two new super-post panamax gantry cranes will be installed at OOCL Kaohsiung Container Terminal (KAOCT) in Kaohsiung Port, Taiwan.
