__The Portainer® cranes are a larger version of the existing cranes at ITS,__ featuring a mono-box Boom with an outreach of 230 feet and lifting capacity of 175 feet over the seaside rail, and will be the largest STS cranes at ITS terminal. The cranes will be built with the latest technology for increased safety and optimal productivity including operator assist system, and laser and camera systems for anti-collision. These cranes will immediately improve production keeping the same safety standard as their predecessor that are still operating at ITS. ITS will have 15 PACECO-MITSUI Portainer® cranes when these 5 cranes are delivered.
ITS, a leader in implementing low emission technologies, has ordered 5 NZE Model (Near Zero Emission) Hybrid Transtainer® RTGs, the latest generation of Hybrid RTGs offered by PACECO. These cranes feature a Small Diesel-Generator to charge the Large Battery Bank, the main energy source of these RTGs. The NZE model RTG reduces the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by approximately 70% compared to conventional RTGs and has been designed to easily convert to a Zero Emission RTG by replacing the Diesel-Generator with a Fuel Cell Power Module, making the NZE Model RTG future proof with the ability to comply with Year 2030 Zero Emission goals set by the port of Los Angeles and port of Long Beach.
“Customers value the lower life cycle cost and reliable performance of PACECO-MITSUI cranes and this order reflects it” commented Soshi Sato, president of PACECO.
The cranes will be delivered from Mitsui E&S Machinery Co. Ltd. (Oita, Japan) in two shipments, to be put into operation early 2023.
