Tratos & Virginia Port cooperation

Tratos has supplied its Tratosflex-ESDB® cable to be used in the cranes of Virginia Port. Tratosflex-ESDB is ideal for container cranes such as these, which operate at speeds up to 300 mt/m, as it has been designed to combat the common problem of twisting that affects cables reeling at high speed

The terminal’s all-electric crane inventory includes six super post-Panamax ship-to-shore cranes, 30 semi-automated rail-mounted gantry yard cranes (RMGs), and two rubber tire gantry cranes (RTGs) with electric spreader bars. Twenty shuttle trucks transport cargo from the dock to the stack area. Fewer diesel engines and use of on-road engines in 62 o -road terminal vehicles contribute to signi cantly reduced levels of particulate matter and nitrous oxide emissions. In addition, electric spreader bars eliminate hydraulic spills.

Virginia Port Authority

The Virginia Port Authority’s operations are provided by Virginia International Terminals, LLC (VIT), a single-member limited liability company wholly owned by the Virginia Port Authority (VPA). In addition, Hampton Roads Chassis Pool, LLC (HRCP II), on behalf of and wholly owned by VIT, operates and manages the intermodal chassis and empty container yards.

In 2019, CNBC ranked Virginia as the #1 state for business, and The Port of Virginia plays a key role in Virginia’s ability to serve those businesses. In a larger sense, The Port of Virginia is doing everything necessary to become the U.S. East Coast’s leading gateway for global trade for the next several decades, and to make Virginia the #1 place for businesses in the country.

Between 2015 and 2025, the port will have invested $1.5 billion in its infrastructure – creating a network of six terminals that can handle any type of cargo. Dredges hit our waters in late 2019 and our deepening and widening efforts are in full swing. By 2024, we’ll once again be the deepest port on the US East Coast with 55’ channels and two-way traffic for the largest vessels calling our coast.
