ZPMCs for Evergreen at Tacoma
Four new ZPMC quay cranes have been delivered to the Pierce County Terminal at Tacoma, with a fifth to arrive shortly. The cranes arrived fully assembled by one of ZPMC' s own heavy lift vessels.
Ultimately, the facility can be enlarged to 237 acres with annual throughput capacity of 1.2 million TEUs. Evergreen Marine will take possession of the facility in January 2005.
Timothy J. Farrell, the port's acting executive directorsay: "They will serve today's generation of 150-foot wide ships, as well as tomorrow's generation of 200-foot wide ships."
As part of its investment in the project and its commitment to the Tacoma-Pierce County region, Evergreen will own all five cranes, as well as all terminal operating equipment, including the straddle carrier fleet.
Evergreen will also provide all terminal operating equipment, including the straddle carrier fleet.
