SSA Marine & subsidiary SSA Terminals announce arrival of 3 new Super Post Panamax cranes for Terminal 18, Seattle.

Together with the three Super Post Panamax cranes that arrived in December 2011, the cranes represent a $54 million investment by SSA Terminals. These are the largest cranes in the Puget Sound region, enabling Terminal 18 to service the world’s largest 18,000 TEU vessels.

 Each crane will have a lifting height of 146 feet and an outreach of 210 feet, allowing for 9 high containers above deck and a reach of twenty four containers wide. The cranes will be capable of lifting container loads weighing up to 65 long tons.

“We made this investment to continue Terminal 18 as the best destination in the Pacific Northwest for the world’s most modern and efficient ships operated by our customers which include two of the world’s largest container lines, Maersk and CMA, along with our partner serving Hawaii, Matson Navigation. No other terminal in the region comes close to Terminal 18’s size, draft and cranes, or T18’s ample on dock and nearby rail connectivity,” stated Jon Hemingway, SSA Marine CEO.

Terminal 18, a 196 acre facility, is operated by SSA Terminals, a subsidiary of SSA Marine. With this ongoing infrastructure investment, Terminal 18 now features the most modern container crane fleet on the West Coast.
