PD Ports’ further expansion of container terminal capacity with £10m investment
As part of its continued growth, £3.2m has been invested in three 24.6m tall rubber tyre gantry cranes (RTGs) which each weigh 141 tonnes and can lift containers weighing up to 40 tonnes and stack them five-high.
The new cranes join an additional four RTGs which have been operational since the expansion of Teesport Container Terminal 2 in 2011.
Manufactured by Liebherr Container Cranes at its factories in Ireland and Spain, they were transported in several sections by sea.
To further increase capacity at Teesport and position it as market leader in UK port logistics, an order worth more than £6m has also been placed with Liebherr for a ship to shore crane at Teesport to complement the two already in operation. www.hellenicshipp...
