We previously reported that halterms new cranes were scheduled to ship on June 8. We now know they will be delivered by ZPMC’s vessel “Zhenhua 19” registered in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.
The information is contained in an application for a coasting trade licence to allow the vessel to
be used to reposition the old smaller gantry crane from pier 42 to pier 36 at the Halterm. This confirms the fate of the crane at pier 42, Which would have been in the way, and would need to be moved or scrapped.
We also now know that the cranes are due July 15, based on the dates provided in the Costing licence Application.
