East Container Terminal (ECT) at the Port of Colombo Bolstered with Three New Ship-to-Shore (STS) Cranes from China

In a significant development, the East Container Terminal (ECT) at the Port of Colombo has recently welcomed three cutting-edge Ship-to-Shore (STS) cranes from China. This delivery is part of a substantial equipment order totaling US$282 million, strategically placed by the Sri Lanka Ports Authority (SLPA).

Arriving at the port aboard the Zhen Hua 24, these state-of-the-art cranes boast an impressive outreach of 72 meters, accommodating 26 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEU) across. Additionally, they feature a back reach extending to 25 meters, a lifting height above rail measuring 55 meters, and a lifting height below rail of 18 meters.

The remarkable capabilities of these cranes include a maximum load capacity under the spreader of 65 tonnes. Moreover, each crane can efficiently handle up to 75 tonnes under the lifting beam.

This strategic acquisition aims to enhance the operational efficiency and cargo handling capacity of the East Container Terminal, positioning it as a key player in the region.
