Construction equipment will be installed at the port of Houston this week to help the company that built a crane that toppled off a building at the site of a major earthquake, the Port Authority of Houston said.
The $20 million crane was erected in December on the site at Houston Street and South Houston Street, the authority said Monday.
The Port Authority plans to install the equipment on the crane, which will be used to lift containers to a crane truck and then to lift the container to the crane and to be moved to a different container terminal.
The crane was installed at a cost of about $40 million, which is a fraction of the $300 million cost of the original project, the port authority said.
It said the crane will be attached to a truck, and it will be towed to a new container terminal and used to move containers to the new terminal.
