Long Beach Container Terminal wanted to raise five IHI dockside cranes and extend the outreach to accommodate larger vessels. Liftech provided the design of the modifications to Bickerton Iron Works to raise the 1980’s container cranes by 10 feet and extend the boom 10 feet. Two years later, Liftech provided the design to raise the cranes an additional 20 feet for a total of 30 feet lift height increase. Liftech also designed a jacking frame for Bickerton Iron Works that allows them to raise each crane in less than a week.
