First STS crane arrives at APM Terminals Vado Ligure

The crane arrived on board ZHENHUA 23 along with four more ASCs, joining the first six that arrived in April. At regime there will be 21 ASCs in the CY. Three more STS cranes are due to arrive in spring next year and operations are due to get underway before the end of 2019.


The voyage by ZHENHUA 23 took two months, from Shangahi to Savona via the Cape.


Infrastructure at the new terminal is said to be 75% complete. Waterside depth alongside the quay varies between -16m and -23m and the quay surface is 4.5m above sea level.


The STS crane and ASCs will be unloaded over the course of the next two weeks, followed by tests during the next months. The crane has a self-weight of 1,800 tonnes and outreach is sufficient for a 23-wide deck stow, with twin 20 capacity of 65 tonnes and, at half maximum outreach, 100 tonnes lift capacity under hook.


The two STS cranes in the dark blue livery are headed for Egypt, believed to be ACCHO Alexandria.

The STS crane will be tested over the next few months
