Port of Dover selects Konecranes for new Dover Cargo Terminal
In March 2018, Konecranes was selected to supply two Konecranes Gottwald Model 5 Mobile Harbor Cranes for the Port of Dover’s new cargo facilities as part of the Dover Western Docks Revival (DWDR) development.
The eco-efficient diesel-electric Model 5 mobile harbor cranes will handle mainly containers and palletised fruit at Port of Dover’s new multi-purpose refrigerated cargo terminal, which is scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2019. The cranes will operate with the hybrid drive technology to maximize fuel economy, reduce exhaust emissions and help the Port create a quieter operating environment.
Dave Herrod, DWDR Programme Director at the Port of Dover, 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 for a new generation Port of Dover customers.”
The terminal will be served by completely new marine and land infrastructure including two deep-water cargo berths.
Neil Griffiths, Regional Sales & Service Director, Konecranes Port Solutions, explains: “UK ports are currently investing in new and more powerful quayside handling equipment to meet ever changing market demands. We are pleased that one of the leading ports has again opted for Konecranes.”
Sam Stewart, General Manager at Port of Dover Cargo Ltd, said: “The completion of the contract for the supply of the cranes is another step forward in the delivery of the enhanced cargo facilities to meet future demand for services and to strengthen Port of Dover Cargo Ltd’s position as the ultimate strategic location with fast, dedicated and direct access to the wider UK and Europe.”
DWDR is the single biggest investment ever undertaken by the Port of Dover and represents the next exciting evolution of the Port, delivering long-term capacity for a key international gateway handling trade to the value of approximately EUR 138 bn (£ 122 bn) and representing up to 17 % of UK trade in goods.
DWDR’s berths include berth A, 251 m and Berth C: 300 m in length, plus a dolphin. The Model 5 mobile harbor cranes in the
G HMK 5506 two-rope variant provide a strong lifting profile with a maximum lifting capacity of 125 t, and an outreach of up to 51 m.
