This colossal crane (dubbed “Hiyí Skwáyel”) is a critical component of Seaspan’s $200 million Shipyard Modernization Project, and will be the largest Gantry Crane in Canada, towering 80 metres high and spanning 76 metres wide. The new state-of-the-art facility will allow Seaspan to efficiently deliver Non-Combat Vessels for the Royal Canadian Navy and Canadian Coast Guard.
The crane components were delivered by ship to the Vancouver Harbour where SST received the components as they were craned onto three large barges. The barges were used to deliver the components to the new berth at the Seaspan Facility.
