The Northwest Seaport Alliance will welcome four ZPMC Super-Post Panamax Cranes to the Seattle Harbor marking a significant milestone in the Terminal 5 Modernization Project.

After spending several weeks traveling from Shanghai to the Pacific Northwest, the cranes will conclude their journey through the Puget Sound to Elliott Bay on Sunday, June 13, passing by Sequim and Port Angeles in the morning that day.

SSA is the owner and future operator of the cranes, which will be among the largest on the West Coast. Standing 316 feet tall with a 240-foot outreach boom, each crane can lift 100 tons of cargo providing increased capacity and job opportunities for the region, Port of Seattle officials say.

Track the cranes and add photos of the cranes at tinyurl.com/SeattleCranes.
