New cranes on the Mersey

[ May 3, 2016   //   ]

The first six cantilever rail-mounted gantry (CRMG) cranes arrived in the River Mersey on 1 May for the Liverpool2 deep-water container terminal.

Produced by leading Chinese manufacturer ZPMC, which also supplied the five ship-to-shore cranes already on site, they are the first of 12 required for phase 1 of the terminal. The cranes will be capable of performing an average of 20 moves per hour, with semi-automated control linked to the port’s new Navis N4 terminal operating system.
