Hitachi Crane Modification and Relocation

Horizon Lines and Matson Navigation purchased three Hitachi cranes located in Los Angeles, California, for relocation to Guam. The cranes were upgraded and strengthened for typhoon winds. Upgrades included a lift height increase of 8 feet, new drives and controls, diesel power, and new tie-downs.

Liftech provided the structural design for upgrade and relocation, assisted with bid evaluations, and reviewed the contractor’s work.

Liftech also provided the design of the Guam wharf improvements in the crane stowage area.
