New crane is breath of fresh air for Scots port

[ March 13, 2018   //   ]

ABP’s Port of Ayr has taken delivery of a new Liebherr Materials Handler crane, making it the first port in the UK to purchase the model.
With a lifting capacity of 8.1 tonnes at a reach of 23.8m the new machine will help Ayr speed vessel discharge rates while improving fuel efficiency and lowering emissions.
ABP port manager Stuart Cresswell, said: “The Port of Ayr has an enviable reputation of being one of the UK quickest ports for cargo discharge, which saves our customers a lot of money. Locally, it is easy to forget that Ayrshire is a fairly remote community in the UK context so the link that the port provides in reducing transportation cost for our customers and connecting them to the rest of the UK and Europe is hugely important.”
