MOBILE - The Alabama State Port Authority has approved the US$800,000 purchase of a new lift machine for Pinto Island Steel Terminal at the Port of Mobile.
The lift machine will be used to transfer ThyssenKrupp steel slabs from ocean-going vessels to barges that will transport the slabs up the Mobile River to the ThyssenKrupp steel mill in Calvert.
The authority had already scheduled purchase of a fourth lift machine for 2012, but due to a delay to a US$1.9 million project at the port’s grain elevator, the funds became available earlier than expected, according to local news reports. The new machine will begin its work after September of this year.
The Pinto Island Terminal opened in 2010 and was built to accommodate ThyssenKrupp’s new US$5 billion steel mill just north of Mobile. The 20-acre terminal consists of 1,000 feet of deep-water dock dredged to 45 feet, as well as an automated barge loading system positioned between the berth and the shoreline.
