The Port of Felixstowe has taken delivery of the latest 2 ship-to-shore cranes for its Felixstowe South development. To be known as Berths 8&9, the first phase of the development will add a further 730 metres of deep-water quay at the UK's largest container port. The new cranes are the largest of their type in the world, and are designed to handle ships with containers stowed up to 24-wide on deck. In total there will be 7 cranes on Berths 8&9 which are scheduled to open in 2011.
