Halterm International Container Terminal, Eastern Canada’s only facility capable to handle Ultra-class container vessels (+10,000 TEU capacity), will extend its container and reefer handling capabilities over the next 12 months, with $10 million worth of new equipment.
These developments will support the terminal’s existing five ship-to-shore crane operation, providing Carriers with congestion-free operations over more than a kilometer of quay, at three berths between 14 and 6 metres draft.
Halterm International Container Terminal provides global container Carriers with fast and efficient access to eastern Canada and the Halifax supply-chain reaches far inland and to the US Midwest … after significant ship-to-shore crane investments delivered into the operation in early 2014, it is the right time to bring on new rubber-tired gantry cranes which will be arriving in February and October of next year.- Kim Holtermand, CEO
The three new ‘1 over 5’ RTGs from Konecranes are to be delivered in 2018. They will span six lanes and allow Halterm to stack containers five-high across import and export zones – an effective increase in yard capacity of 160,000TEU; up 40 percent overall.
