Curacao new cranes 2020

2020 April 2: Curaçao took possession of two new Kalmar gantry cranes in February. The equipment arrived in Willemstad on Sunday February 16 aboard the heavy-cargo carrier Wish Way. The cranes were damaged while being transported into position, making violent contact with Willemstad’s iconic Queen Juliana Bridge. Bridge traffic was suspended but the roadway was re-opened shortly afterwards following engineering inspections. []
