Three new, ship-to-shore cranes, constructed in Ireland, were delivered to Crowley Puerto Rico Services' Isla Grande Terminal in San Juan. The cranes are an important part of the $130 million Crowley is investing in infrastructure improvements to its Isla Grande Terminal.
With the delivery of these state-of-the-art cranes, we are taking another step toward the transformation of our terminal into the most modern and efficient port facility on the island. This is a strong demonstration of our total commitment to the people, infrastructure and future success of Puerto Rico.- Senior Vice President and General Manager, Crowley Puerto Rico Services
The cranes each have a capacity of 65 long tons and measure approximately 65 meters tall, with an outreach of 40 meters. They bring the best-possible container-handling technology – including operator-assist modes, laser profiling that targets containers for precision handling, memory settings and truck positioning system. All of these features improve safety and maximize container loading and discharge efficiency.
