Two more remote-control cranes for Felixstowe

[ April 10, 2018   //   ]

The Port of Felixstowe has taken delivery of its first two remote control ship-to-shore gantry cranes. The two Chinese-built cranes, the 32nd and 33rd at the UK’s largest container port, can work vessels with containers stowed 11-high and 24-wide on deck. Instead of being in a cab 50 metres above the quay, the drivers will be located in a nearby operations centre.
