A Kocks container/heavy lift crane being installed at the Port of Philadelphia is the first of its kind in the world, the company says. The unit will be capable of handling 35 containers per hour and in addition, by separate trolley, lift 375 tons from any ship capable of navigating the Panama Canal. The crane, to become operational this spring, has the same features as the four existing Kocks cranes at the port and also has specially designed storm brakes and capability for future automation of the operator's controls.
