86 new ASCS for the
Port of Virginia's expansion project
BigLift Shipping is grateful and proud to have been a part of the Port of Virginia’s expansion project. Over the course of the last two years, BigLift delivered 86 Konecranes automated stacking cranes (ASCS) to the port. As of now, 26 new cranes are in place at Virginia International Gateway (VIG) and 60 at Norfolk International Terminals (NIT).
14 voyages in 1.5 years
Between 2018 and last May, BigLift executed 14 voyages from Gdynia, PL, to the Port of Virginia, USA. Our grand old lady mv Happy Buccaneer transported the majority of the cranes – 62 pieces in 10 shipments. She crossed the Atlantic ocean eight times carrying six ASCS, and twice she even carried seven cranes.
The remaining 24 cranes were transported by mv Happy Sky – which executed three voyages of six cranes each – and mv Parkgracht. Mv Happy Buccaneer safely discharged the last six cranes in the second half of May.
