Four (4) Banana Unloading Gantries were provided for Standard Fruit and Steamship Company, Port of Long Beach, California, designed to provide an unloading rate of 4,000 boxes per hour. Each traveling gantry includes a rail mounted tower, a main boom, an auxiliary boom, and a marine leg. With the ship alongside the dock, the gantries are moved to a centralized position over the hatches, and the main and auxiliary booms are lowered with the marine leg hanging vertically into each hatch of the ship. An additional four (4) Banana Unloading Gantries have also been provided for the Department of Ports and Terminals, City of New York, utilizing a tray system. Each of the four units is rated at 6,000 boxes per hour. Due to the minimal space available on the wharf, single-legged traveling gantries were used for this application.
