SNCT installs two extra container cranes at Incheon Newport

SNCT (SunKwang New Container Terminal) is set to install two extra container cranes at Incheon Newport, bringing a total of container cranes to seven units it owns.

SNCT will have two extra container cranes installed at its terminal between upcoming Sept. 17 and 19 according to IPA (Incheon Port Authority). The container crane each to be installed weighs 985mt, measures 123m in length and 102m in height as sized medium-large with its outreach of 51m moving on 700m rails, capable of loading-unloading up to 18 tiers and handling 50teu per hour at maximum.

The container cranes manufactured by Hanjin Heavy Industries & Construction (HHIC), which have been run at Gwangyang Port (2-1 Phase) Terminal since 2001, are now sold to SNCT. SNCT is presently running five units of container cranes on a pier of 410m length at Incheon Newport (1st Phase), bringing the total number of its own cranes to seven units under operation.

A vessel with two container cranes on board arrived at SNCT’s pier on Sept. 17 and unloaded them on Sept. 18. These will be run from mid-November this year upon completion of computer-aided installation and trial operation.

Meanwhile, SNCT is scheduled to open a wharf of 800m in total length with wharf space of 480,000㎡ at Incheon Newport with two cranes added. IPA looks forward to Incheon Newport being fully opened in place and smoothly accommodating mega containerships, backed up by upgraded Incheon’s logistics service.
