Floating cranes deployed to clear up accident at Vancouver port

Two floating cranes are being deployed at the Port of Vancouver to try and move a crane that collapsed on Monday onto an Evergreen boxship.
Canada’s Transportation Safety Board is investigating the incident, saying in initial comments that the ship, the 7,024 teu Ever Summit, struck a gantry crane while berthing and both the vessel and crane sustained damage. The board’s comments are supported by a new video (see below) that has emerged of the actual moment of the accident and the subsequent crane collapse.
Vessel operations are still on hold at the Global Container Terminals Vanterm facility, although rail and truck-gate operations are operating.
Fortunately no one was injured in the accident, the latest in a spate of costly crane prangs around the world over the last two years.
