Remote control cranes for Felixstowe

The Port of Felixstowe has taken delivery of two remote control ship-to-shore gantry cranes.

“These new cranes are the latest acquisition in our ongoing investment programme to provide the best equipment, infrastructure and systems for our customers,” said Clemence Cheng, CEO of the Port of Felixstowe and executive director, Hutchison Ports. “They will further enhance our capability to work multiple mega-vessels simultaneously.

“Remote control quay cranes have been pioneered at other Hutchison Ports terminals. Their introduction at Felixstowe will improve the working conditions of the drivers, enhance safety and benefit communications within operational teams.”
