The Port of Miami is setting itself to procure four (4) new Super Post-panamax STS Gantry Cranes this fall from ZPMC to be delivered by early 2013. The cranes are to have the highest lift (43 m) under spreader from dock level as well as the farthest outreach (68 m) in the world. In addition, they will have the capacity to lift 65 LT under a Twin-Lift Separating Spreader and 100 LT under the cargo beam/hook. This along with the dredging and the wharves strengthening will catapult the Port of Miami to the #1 Port in the Gulf of Mexico and the Southeast US to have the capability to serve any container carrying ship to include those that will transit the new Panama Canal opening in 2014.
