Log loading cranes change skyline at Eastland Port
It's not exactly downtown Dubai — the “crane capital” of the world — but the three new 465-tonne mobile log loading cranes have changed the skyline at Eastland Port.
ISO's third cane arrived from Tauranga and was unloaded on Saturday.
Work continues on setting up the big rigs ready to start operation.
The port logistics company hope to get the one from Tauranga up and running in the next couple of weeks and the other two some time later in December.
The cranes will load logs from the wharf directly on to ships, improving safety and productivity.
