Port of Tacoma’s Husky Terminal Dismantles 31-Year-Old STS Cranes

In a sign of the times, the Port of Tacoma’s privately-operated Husky Terminal is dismantling four older, smaller cranes after decades of service. Over the past few years, the facility has taken delivery of eight new post-Panamax cranes made by ZPMC, and the older units are too small to meet modern requirements. The older cranes have been in service since 1989, helping to bring import boxes onto the pier and sending Washington export products like apples, potatoes, and hay overseas, Husky said in a statement. The cranes’ spare parts have been surplused and the metal structure will be recycled locally.
