Dockwise's Dock Express 11

Heavy transport shipping specialist,

Dockwise, was granted a contract by

Hanjung Korea Heavy Industries &

Construction Co. Ltd. for the transporta- tion of four super post Panamax con- tainer cranes from Changwon, Korea to

Jacksonville, Fla.

Following the six-week voyage, the first shipment of two partly erected Han- jung cranes arrived at the Blount Island

Terminal located in the port of Jack- sonville on December 4, 1999. During the voyage, the vessel had to cross the

Bridge of Americas - which crosses the

Panama Canal. In order to accomplish this, the cranes' topsides and booms were lowered to a height of 154 ft. (47 m). The fully erected height of the cranes with the boom up is 295 ft. (90 m). Dock Express 11 is scheduled to perform its second voyage during the end of January - arriving at Jacksonville in early March.
