The cranes are due for delivery in early 2023 to the PSA-Halifax’s Atlantic Hub terminal.

The new Super Post-Panamax ship-to-shore cranes have an outreach of 24-wide making them capable of spanning the largest vessels being deployed along the North American east coast.

The cranes will be added to PSA Halifax’s main berth alongside the five Super Post Panamax cranes currently deployed at the terminal.

2021 was a good year for the Port of Halifax. Both imports and export TEUs were up (302,912 +16.8% and 292,839 +17.2%).

“As the first port of call on North America’s east coast for ships transiting the Atlantic from Europe and South Asia, PSA Halifax offers an uncongested gateway for importers in Canada and the United States,” said Jan Van Mossevelde, CEO, PSA Halifax.
