(photo by Matt Roth).Wednesday, July 11, 2012.Assignment ID: 30128574A..On the left, four super-post Panamax cranes -- the largest model built -- are being erected at The Port of Baltimore's Seagirt Marine Terminal Wednesday, July 11, 2012. The new model can extend the length of 22 shipping containers, whereas the older blue Post Panamax Cranes can only reach the width of 18 shipping containers. The super-Post Panamax crane on the right was fully lifted the day before. The crane to it's left is being lifted, while the two on the right are waiting to be lifted. ..Once the building, testing and training is finished, the Seagirt terminal will join Norfolk, VA as one of the only two ports on the East Coast which can unload new Panamax sized container ships. The cranes are expected to be fully operational in September of this year.
