JAXPORT’s new 100-gauge cranes regularly move containers at the Blount Island Marine Terminal.
The new container cranes are equipped to service wider, post-Panamax vessels with the ability to reach across 22 containers. Each electric crane works on regenerative power, consuming power during the lifting of containers and creating energy as they lower. The use of electricity will increase energy efficiencies and reduce emissions.
JAXPORT’s long-term strategic plan calls for the purchase of a total of ten 100-gauge cranes for Blount Island in the next 10 years.
