Laying the groundwork for the increased cargo, Ports America Chesapeake, the private operator that leases Seagirt Marine Terminal under a long-term deal with the state, is investing more than $160 million in terminal upgrades and yard equipment. Four massive container cranes, which are set to arrive in August, costing a combined $55 million, will allow longshoremen to unload containers from the ships at the deep berths. Bayard Hogans, vice president of Ports America Chesapeake, said the company has purchased 15 new gantry cranes, which longshoremen use to move shipping containers around on the docks and to and from trucks and trains.
