Port of Everett Crane Campaign: Follow the Journey Here!

Date: Jun 10, 2019
A fitting event on #nationalmaritimeday as the 1st leg of the journey to retrieve our cranes is complete. @FossMaritime arrived safely at the @PortofLA this morning. Loading and sea bracing of the 2 container cranes is on the agenda for the next 10 days. #GoBigGoEverett.


One weld at a time. Crews are welding sea bracing onto the crane booms in preparation for the journey north. @FossMaritime @PortofLA #PortofEverett #GoBigGoEverett #CranesAreComing


Ready to roll! Early this morning, @fossmaritime positioned the barge in the channel, stern to dock, in preparation for the Port's first container crane to be loaded from dock to barge this afternoon at the @PortofLA#GoBigGoEverett #CranesAreComing #PortofEverett


Here we go! #GoBigGoEverett #CranesAreComing #PortofEverett


Many wheels make light work. Each container crane weighs in at more than 2.4M lbs. It takes 320 tires to successfully move each crane onto the barge. @PortofLA @FossMaritime #PortofEverett #GoBigGoEverett #CranesAreComing

The Port’s Seaport Modernization allows the Port to handle larger vessels and heavier cargoes now calling Everett, including parts for the new 777X. The cranes will handle the oversized containers that arrive weekly from Japan, supporting this key role in aerospace logistics.


The @FossMaritime barge carrying the #PortofEverett Seaport’s two container cranes is almost the size of the field the @Seahawks play on. It measures 120 yards long by 40 yards wide! #GoBigGoEverett #CranesAreComing #GoHawks
