Truss Boom Crane Design

The client operates terminals at a port in southern China and wanted to procure five new super post-Panamax cranes for a terminal with limited wheel load and tie-down load capacity. ZPMC proposed a truss boom and girder design to reduce wheel loads and tie-down loads.

Liftech assisted the client by participating in the conceptualization and design of the upper works structure including the boom, trolley girder, trolley girder hangers, apex beam, and trolley structure. Our work included assisting with the design and performing design review and fabrication review of the crane primary structure.

The key parameters are:
Rail span 30 m
Outreach 56 m
Container lift height 43 m
