Konecranes to provide two cranes for Port of Dover’s terminal

Konecranes has secured a contract to provide two of its cranes for the cargo terminal of the Port of Dover situated in the UK.

Konecranes has secured a contract to provide two of its cranes for the cargo terminal of the Port of Dover situated in the UK.

The Konecranes Gottwald Model 5 Mobile Harbor Cranes will be installed as part of the port’s new Dover Western Docks Revival (DWDR) development.

They will be available in a two-rope variant to offer a maximum lifting capacity of 125t and an outreach of up to 51m.

Port of Dover DWDR programme director Dave Herrod said: “The new multi-purpose cargo terminal and the ongoing transformation of the Western Docks are perfectly placed to take European logistics to the next level and give businesses a competitive edge.

“We have opted once more for versatile cranes to help us meet the future demands of the business and deliver a rapid turnaround.”

“DWDR represents the biggest investment made by the Port of Dover to deliver long-term capacity for a key international gateway handling trade.”

Upon completion, Port of Dover’s terminal will be equipped with two deep-water cargo berths, as well as other marine and land infrastructure.

DWDR represents the biggest investment made by the Port of Dover to deliver long-term capacity for a key international gateway handling trade to the value of nearly €138bn and accounting for up to 17% of UK trade in goods.

Konecranes Port Solutions regional sales and service director Neil Griffiths said: “UK ports are currently investing in new and more powerful quayside handling equipment to meet ever-changing market demands.”

In April, Konecranes won an order from the Netherlands-based European Bulk Services (EBS) to provide four-rope grab cranes.

The Konecranes Gottwald Model 6 Mobile Harbor Cranes will be installed at the Port of Rotterdam to support EBS’ growing bulk-handling business in the long term.
