These represent an investment of US$30M, says Puerto Coronel.


The cranes will be unloaded and placed on the quay between 28th February and 5th March, stated general manager Javier Anwandter, by a team of Puerto Coronel’s engineers, who have undergone special training, and 16 ZPMC technicians.

Puerto Coronel currently has two STS cranes in operation. These were acquired in 2009. With the two new cranes, it is the first in this region of Chile to have four STS gantry cranes. Productivity is estimated at 85 moves per berth hour on average with peaks of 100 moves.


Rail span at the container terminal is just 24.38m.


It is understood that ZHEN HUA 24 arrived on the Chilean coast with four STS cranes, the other two to be delivered to SSA San Vicente.
