The Port of Philadelphia (PhilaPort) is electrifying Tioga Marine Terminal’s diesel-operated container cranes.
PhilaPort plans to convert the terminal’s two ship-to-shore gantry cranes to run 100-percent on electric power. The project will improve air quality for surrounding neighborhoods and reduce the terminal’s operating costs. Tioga Marine Terminal is Philadelphia’s largest multi-purpose cargo handling facility.
Supporting Carr and Duff, Burns serves as the engineer of record on the design-build project.
Burns is proud to support PhilaPort advance goals of expanding, modernizing and electrifying the Philadelphia region’s port facilities. Previous projects include upgrades to the Packer Avenue Marine Terminal.
