Long Beach Terminal Orders Two Additional Transtainer Cranes

Long Beach Container Terminal, Inc., recently ordered two Transtainer® cranes from Paceco, Inc. of Alameda, Calif. Paceco, worldwide manufacturer of dockside, terminal, and shipboard container handling cranes, is a subsidiary of Fruehauf Corporation, Detroit. The two r u b b e r - t i r ed Transtainer cranes will be added to the two Transtainer cranes recently delivered by Paceco and put into operation at the Port of Long Beach, Pier J container terminal.

These 3 0 - l o n g - t o n terminal cranes will have 74-foot spans giving them the capability of stacking 20-foot and 40-foot containers four-high and six-wide, including a truck roadway. They will be equipped with reeved-in telescopic spreaders and air-conditioned cabs for operator comfort.

Paceco's Gulfport, Miss., manufacturing facility will fabricate the crane components, which will be shipped by rail to the Long Beach site for erection. The new terminal cranes are scheduled for delivery in mid-1981.
