The Port of Everett in the US will add a 165 US ton (150 tonne) capacity Terex G HMK 7608 mobile harbour crane to increase its port capacity. The model, which will be added in 2015, is part of a $1.5 million investment from the Port Commission. The G HMK 7608 will help the port handle over-dimensional cargoes.
Following the new addition, the port will have two harbour cranes, which will work in tandem and offer a 250 tonne capacity. In addition, three 45 tonne Hyster reach stackers with Tier-4 engines will also be added to the port. A 42.6 m heavy lift pad is also being constructed at the port. The pad is expected to cost $2.5 million and will be used for roll-on and roll-off cargo operations. It is scheduled to be completed in 2015.
