Haifa Port reported a record output of 318.8 containers per ship hour last week through the use of six STS cranes at the Carmel Terminal while working on the vessel "ZIM Los Angeles".

 

The crew operating the G21 crane broke a port record for the number of containers moved by one single crane at 74.7 containers per crane hour. The average number of containers moved by one crane in 2015 is currently 30 containers per crane hour.

 

Haifa Port's board of directors approved the purchase of two additional STS cranes and three gantry cranes for the terminal, which have already been ordered.
 

With a length of 700 meters and a depth of 15.5 meters, the Carmel Terminal currently utilizes six super post-Panamax gantry cranes and 12 rail-mounted gantry cranes according to the port's website.

 

By implementing the Navis TOS system and improving the capabilities of the Carmel Terminal, Haifa Port is now well-prepared to handle large container ships and provide them with, as has been proven by this week’s achievement and by the port’s increased overall productivity during the past year.

 

Mendi Zaltzman, CEO of Haifa Port, concluded: "Service excellence and high productivity are the cornerstones of this port’s future, and we will only continue to improve in all areas. We challenge the shipping line decision makers to test us."
