Three new ZPMC super-post-panamax twin lift quay cranes with a 24-row outreach and a 49-metre height have arrived at Busan New Container Terminal (BNCT).
With this addition BNCT has a new total of 11 STS cranes with a total handling capacity of 2.5 million TEU.
John Elliott, CEO of BNCT, said: “With no additional terminals planned to open until after 2019 in Busan, and with all other terminals in New Port operating near their maximum capacity [now], BNCT is the only container terminal able to provide Busan Port with major additional capacity, especially for mega-size vessels.
“Our expansion comes at the right time for [Busan] New Port which continues to show strong growth in volume and significant increases in both number and size of vessels calling here.”
Already in its third year of operation, BNCT has shown steep growth, handling over 1.4 million TEU in 2014, an 18% increase over 2013.

A mobile crane overturned while lifting a new boat yesterday in the Indian town of Tuticorin, Tamil Nadu, in Southern India
Three people were injured when the crane attempted to lift the 20 ton fishing boat into the sea, one is thought to have been the crane operator. According to the police, the local department of fisheries has banned the use of cranes for lifting boats into the sea – at least at this location – following a number of similar incidents in the past.
The crane was attempting to lift the boat from the quay into the water
A police spokesman said: “This jetty was designed and built to handle carts collecting fish from the boats, it cannot withstand heavier objects such as cranes. If this instruction is violated, accidents will certainly happen, putting those involved as well as bystanders at risk. We are contemplating action against the boat owner who hired the crane.”
The crane looks like a Grove truck crane from the later 1960′s early 1970′s with a capacity of between 25 and 40 tons, which would have struggled to have handled a bulky 20 ton load at with extended boom and radius.

A large boom lift came off the back of a truck in Brisbane, Australia this morning after it struck a bridge in Kangaroo Point.
The boom struck the overpass as it went under
Photos indicate that the riser on the JLG – possibly an 800 series articulating boom – was not full stowed, raising its height by a critical 200 to 300 mm or so. The incident occurred as rush hour traffic was getting underway, causing considerable delays.
It looks as though the riser was not fully lowered
