New Cranes at Alabama State Docks

New cranes are offloaded at the Alabama State Docks in Mobile in November 2006 to replace a crane lost in a March 2006 accident. As ZIM Mexico III was leaving port, it lost power to its bow thruster during a maneuver and crashed into the dock, killing one electrician and destroying the crane he was working on.
