The main container terminal at the Port of Vancouver remains closed after a crane came down on a vessel Monday (Jan. 28) morning.
A spokesperson for GCT Global Container Terminals Inc. confirmed to Global News that during berthing Monday morning, at around 4 a.m., a vessel came into contact with a GCT Vanterm ship-to-shore crane.
The Evergreen vessel, Ever Summit, is still being held alongside with tugs as the crane boom is now on top of a container stack toward the rear of the ship.
GCT says an exclusion zone has been set up to ensure the safety of everyone at the terminal and for any operational impacts.
Transport Canada said “there have been no reports of injuries on board the vessel or ashore, nor any reports of pollution.”
