DCT’s State-Of-The-Art STS Cranes On Rails

T2 investment has reached a decisive vertical dimension. Three STS cranes, which in May had arrived dismantled by sea for the second berth of DCT Gdansk terminal, were erected and the process of transporting them to the crane rails began a few days ago. Now, all three of them are positioned on the crane rails.

The second berth of deepwater container terminal will be equipped with five largest and most modern STS cranes in Europe. The components of remaining two cranes will be delivered next month.
