Four new cranes for Hutchison's Felixstowe expansion


Singapore's AAL has delivered four rubber-tyred gantry cranes (RTGs) to Felixstowe enabling to port to add an additional 18,000 TEU of container storage capacity.
The ZPMC Chinese-made RTGs were loaded in Shanghai and shipped to Felixstowe aboard the AAL Kobe, for the CPIA forwarding and shipping agency. The cranes, each measuring 32 m x 14 m x 30 m and weighing just under 200 tonnes will serve Berths 8 and 9 at the port. They are capable of stacking containers six-high to enable more efficient use of the new yard, reports London's Logistics Manager.
Said AAL commercial director Christophe Grammare: "Although the UK is a significant container shipping market - Felixstowe being the 6th busiest container port in Europe with about 26 million tonnes of cargo each year - it is not immediately associated with project heavy lift cargo. The RTGs were shipped there on-deck of the AAL Kobe which, with a highly flexible cargo capacity of almost 40,000 cbm, was also carrying additional project cargo under-deck that was discharged a few days later in Ireland."
