Liftech assisted Sydney International Container Terminals Pty Ltd with structural design and review of four post-Panamax ZPMC low profile shuttle boom cranes for their new container terminal across from an airport in Sydney, Australia.
Liftech participated in the conceptualization and design of the shuttle boom structure, the boom hangers, and the crane structure. Liftech’s work included assisting with design, design review, fabrication observation, and seafastening review.
The key design issues were related to the truss boom and the boom hangers, which are unique to shuttle boom cranes.
The key parameters are:
|Rail span||35 m|
|Overall height||52 m|
|Container lift height||34 m above rail|
