OAKLAND, CA: February 19, 2019. SSA Terminals, operator of Oakland International Container Terminal (OICT), has placed a $30 million order for three ship-to-shore cranes from Shanghai-based manufacturer ZPMC for delivery in mid-2020.

SSA Terminals OAK 2The cranes, as high as 440 feet with booms upraised, would be delivered partially assembled to assure clearance under the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge.

The Port of Oakland said the mega gantry cranes are required to handle container ships with a capacity of 23,000 TEU stacked 12-high above deck.

“This demonstrates the faith that business partners have in Oakland as a trade gateway,” said Port Maritime director John Driscoll. “There’s no more visible sign of a port’s growth than installing larger ship-to-shore cranes.”

According to SSA the new cranes would have a lift height of 174 feet above the dock and reach 225 feet across a ship’s deck. The terminal operator, which currently operates 10 cranes, said it would remove three older versions when the new ones are installed.

“Big ships are the future,” said SSA Containers president Ed DeNike. “They’re coming to Oakland and we’re going to be ready for them.”

OICT handles more than 60 percent of the Port’s total cargo volume.
