Giant Crane Arrives in NW Ind

Share this post

The largest conventional crawler crane in the world has arrived in northwest Indiana -- at the Port of Indiana-Burns Harbor.   Federal Marine Terminals, the port's terminal operator, will be unloading the 190 crane components over the next seven to eight days with workers from the International Longshoremen's Association and the International Union of Operating Engineers. The ocean vessel "Elandsgracht" transporting the German-made crane arrived Monday, and Director of Corporate Affairs for the Ports of Indiana Jody Peacock says when fully assembled, it will have a lifting capacity of 3,000 tons, standing 473 feet tall with its boom fully extended.  The crane is the first of its kind. It'll be transported from the port to Whiting over the next six weeks for the BP Whiting Refinery expansion project.
