The vessel Zhen Hua completed its delivery of two new ship-to-shore gantry cranes for DP World’s Centerm container terminal in the Port of Vancouver this week. As part of Centerm’s $320 million expansion plan, the new gantry cranes are part of upgrades that will result in increasing the terminal capacity by 66%, from 900,000 TEUs to 1.5 million TEUs, by the end of 2022. Upgrades include a seven-acre westward extension of the terminal footprint for a larger and reconfigured container and intermodal yard, infill of the old Ballantyne pier terminal for more container processing space, and major road connection improvements with the new Centennial Road overpass viaduct.
