Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG (HHLA) took delivery of three new container gantry cranes for its Container Terminal Burchardkai (CTB) in Hamburg on Tuesday afternoon, 5 November 2019. This will provide HHLA with additional capacities for handling ultra large container vessels with a cargo volume of 23,000 standard containers (TEU) and more.
The three state-of-the-art container gantry cranes arrived at their temporary berth at Athabaskakai on board the special ship “Zhen Hua 27” after a journey of almost eight weeks. Preparations for the complex unloading process will take place there before the “Zhen Hua 27” shifts to the final location at berth 6 in the Waltershofer Hafen.
