Container Cranes and Rigging

Container Cranes and Rigging

Port of New York and New Jersey home to some of world’s largest container cranes.

As part of a major expansion of the Port of New York and New Jersey, three massive shipping cranes have been erected at the Port Newark Container Terminal (PNCT) on Newark Bay. The cranes, classified as super-post-Panamax, among the largest container cranes in the world, will allow the port to accept larger cargo ships that will begin shipping directly from Asia to the East Coast once the Panama Canal expansion is completed in 2015. 

The cranes, shipped by manufacturer ZMPC from Shanghai aboard a specially-designed freighter, arrived in New Jersey in May 2014. They stand 561 feet tall and, with their longer arms, are capable of rigging higher stacks of containers, and can extend farther to unload big ships that are 22 containers wide. Previous PNCT cranes were capable of rigging a maximum of 18 rows of containers. 

The $500 million PNCT expansion is part of a larger effort that includes dredging of channels in New York Harbor as well as a $1.3 billion project to raise the height of the Bayonne Bridge to allow larger ships to reach terminals in Newark and Elizabeth. 

Container cranes are generally classified by their lifting capacity and size of the ships they can unload. “Panamax” refers to cranes rigging ships capable of passing through the Panama Canal prior to its expansion. Post-Panamax cranes can load and unload ships that are too wide to pass through the Panama Canal up to 18 containers wide.  Super-post-Panamax cranes can rig containers from ships 22 or more containers wide. The Panama Canal will be wide enough to accommodate most container ships once the current expansion project is completed.
