Safety assessments on 4 new cranes at Southampton’s container terminal

Safety assessments on 4 new cranes at Southampton’s container terminal
26/02/2014

IMES and ABP ports contracted ISI to provide the PUWER 1998 Safety Assessment on the four new £26 million cranes at Southampton Western Docks.

Southampton docks are amongst the most productive in Europe and the new ship to shore gantry cranes will enable Southampton’s container terminal to handle the growing number of ultra large container vessels (ULCCs), cementing the port’s position at the forefront of global container trade.

Constructed by Liebherr in Ireland, the four 1,300-tonne, 126m (413ft) high gantry cranes were shipped to Southampton in component form before being assembled on site and edged into place on a newly constructed quay wall at the end of January.

Once operational, the cranes will be able to handle ULCCs of 24 containers wide and will have a lift capacity of 65 tonnes. The four new cranes will be supplemented by a fifth similar Liebherr crane, which will be relocated from Southampton’s existing container berths.
