Following a crane upgrade at Husky Terminal the NWSA wants to sell the older cranes on the left.

The Northwest Seaport Alliance wants to surplus five STS cranes in Tacoma and associated spare parts. Four of the cranes are at the Husky Terminal at Pier 3 in Tacoma, which has received the first four of eight new ZPMC units. The fifth crane is at Terminal 7 (East Sitcum) in Tacoma.


The crane at Terminal 7 is the oldest of the five. It was delivered in 1978 by IHI and has not been used since 2015. The four cranes at Husky include two Kone units dating from 1989 and two ZPMC cranes built in 1999 and 2001. All the cranes have a 64ft rail gauge.


The NWSA has budgeted US$5.2M in its Capital Investment Plan for 2019-2023 to cover the removal of the four cranes at Husky Terminal, but not the IHI crane at Terminal 7.


The NWSA plans to advertise the cranes for sale later in the year, and aims to dispose of them early in 2020. If no buyer emerges the cranes will be scrapped.
