    Associated British Ports has applied for planning to expand its Grimsby River Terminal, in order to be able to handle the world’s largest car carriers.

    The application to the Marine Management Organisation (MMO) is the critical first step in the consenting process to extend the existing berthing infrastructure, as well as deepen the berthing pocket through dredging.

    These improvements will enable the terminal, which can already handle two 175m long vessels simultaneously, to further support the automotive sector.

    If approved, the port operator will commit a multi-million pound investment to the site which will see vessels up to around 9,000 CEU berth alongside.

    Ashley Curnow, ABP Port Manager for Grimsby said: “For many years Grimsby has been at the forefront of the movement of cars in the UK industry. This development will take us to the next exciting level. The port already has a proud history behind it and a bold future ahead.”

    A response from the MMO is expected imminently.

    ABP Grimsby currently handles around 500,000 vehicles a year and accounts for 50% of all VW imports into the UK. It recently expanded backland storage capacity for imported cars by redeveloping the former Huntsman Tioxide site, which it acquired for its Grimsby Automotive Terminal in 2016. On completion, 10,000 parking slots will be available.

    Georgia Ports Authority (GPA) in the USA has ordered 20 Konecranes RTGs for the Port of Savannah, Georgia.

    When these cranes are operational, the Port of Savannah will operate a total of 178 Konecranes RTGs.

    GPA is the largest, fastest-growing container terminal in North America and its current fleet of 158 RTG, including 12 for delivery this year, is the largest of its kind in the USA.

    Chris Novack, Senior Director of Engineering & Facilities Maintenance, GPA, commented: “The GPA is thrilled to continue our strategic partnership with the purchase of 20 additional RTGs from Konecranes. The quality of their equipment and the technical support that they provide is second to none.”

    Jussi Suhonen, Regional Sales Director Americas, Konecranes Port Solutions, said: “The Savannah Harbor Expansion Project is moving ahead on schedule. The amazing growth of the Port of Savannah continues. Its positive effect on the economies of Georgia and the entire US eastern seaboard keeps growing. This port was the first to take delivery of Konecranes innovative RTG design back in 1995. When the RTGs currently on order are delivered, the port’s Konecranes RTG fleet will be 178 strong.”

    The 20 RTGs on order are diesel-electric machines, with cable reel readiness for electric operation. They are high-performance, 16-wheel RTGs with a SWL of 50 tons, stacking 6 + 1/1 over 5. They will feature Konecranes Active Load Control system, which eliminates away, and autosteering. They will also be equipped with Konecranes’ Truconnect remote monitoring system.

    Uddevalla Hamnterminal in Sweden has placed an order for a rail-mounted Konecranes Gottwald Model 3 harbour crane.

    The G HSK 3432 model will be delivered later this year. The unit has been designed to fit on the terminal’s existing rails on the quay and will have a maximum lifting capacity of 100 tons (90.7 tonnes), and a lifting radius of 46 m.

    Uddevalla has opted for the crane to be equipped with an external power supply, which will make use of existing local grid electricity.

    This, according to Konecranes, results in less noise, no local exhaust, and reduced operational costs.

    According to Ulf Stenberg, managing director of Uddevalla Hamnterminal, the terminal needed additional lifting equipment for project cargo and container handling as a result the expanding business in the region.

    Uddevalla Hamn’s Model 3 G HSK 3432 will be the first Gottwald rail portal-mounted crane in Sweden.

    In January Uddevalla Hamn Terminal AB reported that it would be ordering a rail-mounted quay crane, although no further information was available.

    Konecranes has now reported that the crane will be an electrically-powered, 2-rope Model 3 Konecranes Gottwald crane in the G HSK 3432 variant. It will be delivered this autumn 2019 and commissioned in December.
     
    Ulf Stenberg, Managing Director of Uddevalla Hamn, said the port realised it hat they needed additional lifting equipment for project cargo and container handling.

    “We had a Gottwald mobile harbor crane installed in 1986,” says Stenberg. “Its longevity is impressive – it still works well, though of course, we’ve kept up maintenance. We like this crane a lot, but it can only lift 40 tons and we wanted a more powerful crane to help us manage the growing demands for cargo handling in our terminal.”

    The new crane is designed to meet the port’s specific quay infrastructure with existing rails. It increases cargo handling performance up to a maximum lifting capacity of 100 tons and a radius of 46 meters.

    “This is very exciting for us and our local distributor, Port-Trade ApS Denmark,” saidHans-Juergen Schneider, Regional Sales Manager for Konecranes’ Business Unit Mobile Harbor Cranes. “It’s the first Konecranes Gottwald portal harbor crane in Sweden and the market is now wide open for this type of crane.”
