An Evergreen ship, the Ever Summit, that struck a gantry crane at the GCT Vanterm container facility in the Port of Vancouver on January 28 has been freed through recovery operations and is expected to depart on Thursday morning, announced GCT spokesperson Louanne Wong.
The impacted ship-to-shore crane boom was removed from the vessel on Tuesday, paving the way for resumption of full vessel operations. “Subsequently, the ship was relocated to the appropriate position on the berth and is currently being worked on, with a focus on removing damaged Vancouver-destined containers,” Ms. Wong said.
The Transportation Safety Board is investigating the incident which caused no injuries but slowed traffic at Canada’s largest port.
