Savannah Receives Harbor Cranes

(Americas) Ocean Terminal Upgrade

Authorities at the Port of Savannah have received and installed two new mobile harbor cranes at the port’s Ocean Terminal.

The giant cranes each features lift capacity of 125 tons and can be configured to handle either containers or breakbulk cargo. The additions are part of upgrade work by the Georgia Ports Authority that will include eight new rubber-tired gantry cranes and a new truck gate with direct access to Interstate 516.

"We're developing this into a niche terminal that will provide the highest priority and service to vessels in this class," said Griff Lynch, GPA executive director.

The port of Savannah is one of Georgia’s primary deepwater ports and is operated by the Georgia Ports Authority along with the port of Brunswick and inland barge operations in Bainbridge and Columbus.
