(MENAFN) Sohar Port and Freezone has received three, quayside container gantry cranes, and the complex operation of their offloading has been completed, according to #Oman Observer.

The last of three massive Post Panamax cranes arrived to shore safely by end of day on Tuesday despite the bad weather.

The OICT engineer supervising the operation said: "We"ve built temporary rail bridges from ship to shore so we can move the cranes to the quayside. Each crane weighs hundreds of tons, so the transport ship needs to be balanced by water ballast as the cranes are removed in order to keep its height above the water line constant. Add to that the tide movements and the weather, and you can imagine the challenges we are dealing with."
