London Gateway cranesDP World London Gateway took delivery of what it says are the largest cranes ever to arrive in the UK on 1 March. The giant quay cranes, at 138 metres tall two and a half times the height of Nelson’s column at 138 metres tall, were delivered into the Thames Estuary this morning, after a two month voyage from China. A further 21 of the 1,848-tonne cranes will be delivered once construction on the six main berths is completed.
