Project/Heavy Lift

Wind-tower-122012-webThe Port of Vancouver USA has a proven track record for handling project cargo. We are a global leader in the importing of project cargo and are a gateway for large modularized components via the Columbia Snake River System into North America. The port’s two Liebherr mobile harbor cranes can operate at any breakbulk berth at the port and have a lifting capacity of 140 metric tons each. Together, the cranes can lift an impressive 210 metric tons. For more information on our cranes, download our specifications sheet.

Terminal 2, Berth 3 is equipped with a Paceco multi-purpose crane with a 51-metric ton capacity and a 115-foot outreach. The port has designated Terminal 2, Berth 3 as a project cargo berth and may give berthing preference to ocean-going ships loading or discharging project cargo.
