CONTAINER HANDLING BY THE LIFT ON/LIFT OFF METHOD IN RARELY MENTIONED PORTS

Slewing crane for container handling is described, such as would be suitable for the few ports of Finland. Crane slewing is limitless, radius 30 m. The double level jib keeps the containers in a horizontal position irrespective of outreach, and the large outreach means that containers can be lifted off the ship straight onto a truck, train or quayside storage area, and vice versa.
