Title: Zhen Hua 23 is on her way to the Port of Felixstowe.

The crane vessel Zhen Hua 23 left Shanghai's ZMPC yard with 2 brand new gantry cranes to go on Felixstowe's Berths 8&9. Her scheduled ETA is for the 5th March but subject to change.

The Zhen Hua 23 is off Gran Canaria heading for Felixstowe. Her ETA is Tuesday 20th March during daylight hours. As her arrival is for Berths 8&9. We are unsure which berth she will go alongside and discharge the 2 new cranes but it seems logical to have them on Berth 8 where the 3 that arrived a couple of years ago on the Zhen Hua 25.

Lets hope this visit is not as catastrophic as her previous in 2008

Derek Sands, I'm sure lessons have been learnt and the cranes on Berth 8 will be moved far away from the Zhen Hua.
