Super Post Panamax cranes to be operational in Halifax by 2024

November 9, 2023  By CTV News

The Halifax, N.S. waterfront has a couple of new giant additions to position that city as a major North American cargo handling destination: two 57-metre, 1,600 tonne Super Post Panamax cranes.

One crane has been offloaded and it’ll be another two days before the second one is on shore. It will take six weeks of testing before they are operational, with a target date of January 2024.

Combined with the Fairview terminal, capacity will increase from 1.1 million TEUs, or 20-foot equivalent units, to a capacity of 1.4 million by the end of next year. Further upgrades are coming. PSA plans to put another $200 million into the modernization of Halifax’s cargo terminals
