New Ship-to-Shore Crane Delivery and Installation at GCT Deltaport
As part of the GCT Deltaport Intermodal Rail Yard Reconfiguration Yard, we are adding two new Megamax ship-to-shore (STS) cranes to our facility. The Megamax cranes will be the largest in North America, and are estimated to arrive around June 7, with offloading and installation taking approximately 10 days in total. To minimize any potential disruption to our neighbours and stakeholders, GCT Canada ensured that the majority of pre-assembly occurred at the manufacturer’s site.
While the two new STS cranes will look similar to our existing fleet, they boast many exciting features that make them an important part of our commitment to a more sustainable future. The electric-powered cranes are the most advanced in North America and are equipped with regenerative drives and high-efficiency LED lighting. They are also designed to reduce operational noise levels considerably compared to other STS cranes.
Estimated Delivery Date: June 7, 2017
Working Hours: 06:00 to 18:00
Location: 2 Roberts Bank Way, Delta, BC
