Two massive 180-ft. container cranes weighing 700 tons each departed Seattle on September 4 on a barge headed for the Dominican Republic. DBM (Donald B. Murphy) Contractors Inc. designed and installed 250 tons of voyage bracing and seafastening off-loaded the cranes onto the Viking I barge
and will commission the cranes when they arrive in the Dominican Republic in about 30 days.
Port of Seattle recently sold the cranes to Haina International Terminals in the Dominican Republic. The cranes will travel down the West coast and through the Panama Canal to reach the Dominican port.
