Goliath Gantry Crane

In February 2014, BigLift’s Happy Sky has discharged a 1,800 mt Kone Goliath Gantry Crane in Salvador, Bahia.
The Gantry Crane was built in Mokpo, South Korea for the Estaleiro Enseada do Paraguaçu shipyard, which is under construction in the municipality of Maragojipe, approximately 43 km from Salvador, the capital of Bahia state. The shipyard is being built to develop complex naval engineering projects and is scheduled to start operations in 2014.
BigLift Shipping has been moving many cranes over the years, but this one is definitely extra-large. Furthermore, the present cargo and the carrying vessel are more or less colour-coded as well.
