N e w Container Cranes For Port Of O a k l a nd Expansion Program

The Port of Oakland, Calif., has prepared plans for the construction and installation of container cranes at the Charles P. Howard Container Terminal now under construction in the Oakland Inner Harbor near Jack London Square.

The Oakland board of port commissioners recently approved a proposal to advertise for bids for the equipment, calling for alternative bids for the supply of two cranes and three cranes. The bids are to be opened in late March or April 1980.

A port official said that the use of two cranes would minimize the turnaround time of vessels in port. A third crane would permit simultaneous operations of both berths at the terminal, as well as providing backup capability in case of a mechanical breakdown of one crane.

The new Charles P. Howard Container Terminal is being built on the site of the Grove/ Market Street conventional cargo facility.

The 43-acre terminal will be built in two phases — 24 acres and 19 acres — and will have two berths served by the container cranes.
