Produced by ZPMC in China and shipped on one of the manufacturer’s semi-submersible ships, the cranes mark the final stage of a USD48.4 million project to strengthen and upgrade the Wando Welch Terminal wharf as well as the infrastructure required for handling larger vessels.

The Wando Welch Terminal received its first two neo-Panamax cranes in August 2016, and an additional crane is on order for delivery in August 2019.
