Full vessel operations resume at GCT Vanterm

Vessel discharge of the Ever Summit, which struck a crane on Jan. 28, is expected to be completed by Thursday morning.

 
Full vessel operations resumed late Tuesday afternoon at the Port of Vancouver’s Global Containers Terminals Vanterm facility after the ship-to-shore crane that collapsed onto an Evergreen Line container ship last week was removed earlier in the day.
    The vessel — the 7,024-TEU Ever Summit — was relocated to the appropriate position on the berth and was being worked on Tuesday with a focus on removing damaged Vancouver-destined containers. Vessel discharge was expected to be completed by early Thursday morning, according to a GCT statement.
    Two floating cranes — the 900-ton The Beast and the 600-ton Artic Tuk — helped with recovery operations, which were slowed over the weekend due to high winds and the discovery of more extensive damage to the crane’s boom than initially assessed. GCT Canada’s engineering and maintenance teams, with assistance from external contractors, worked on the recovery operation.
    “We would like to take this opportunity to thank GCT’s amazing engineering and maintenance teams, as well as our outside contractors,” reads the emailed statement. “Together this group worked tirelessly to safely and expeditiously return us to full operations. As always, our primary concern is for the safety of all those individuals working at or interacting with our terminals and the vessels that call us.”
    Truck gate and rail operations were unaffected by the collapse, which occurred about 4 a.m. Jan. 28 after the containership struck the crane while berthing.

The opportunity we have right now to improve the NAFTA is too important not to get it right. We have a chance to set the American economy and American workers on a better course.

The Port of Zeebrugge is called by 12 liner services that also sail to regions outside North Europe, according to BlueWater Reporting’s Port Dashboard tool.
