Large crane part moves through JAXPORT

Skilled dock workers with port partner Patriot Ports moved a large crane support beam through JAXPORT’s Talleyrand Marine Terminal this week. The equipment, part of a ship’s onboard crane, is 120 feet in length and weighs 25 metric tons.

The part arrived at JAXPORT from Poland aboard the Spliethoff general cargo vessel Sluisgracht. Stevedores lowered the beam onto the terminal before lifting it onto a barge for transport to its destination at a North Florida shipyard where it will be added to a ship as part of a vessel refurbishment.

Talleyrand Marine Terminal offers 4,780 linear feet of berth space, on-dock rail, and is conveniently located near three U.S. interstates, I-10, I-95 and I-75. Jacksonville’s skilled workforce offers a variety of labor options, including highly trained master riggers specializing in heavy lift and project cargo.
