Giant Quay Cranes Arrived at DP World London Gateway

Two more of the UK’s most technically advanced quay cranes were brought up the River Thames earlier this week.

The cranes completed the long sea voyage from China on vessel Zhen Hua 10 via the Cape of Good Hope to arrive at DP World London Gateway Port, just 25 miles from Central London.

When installed, they will match DP World London Gateway’s existing cranes in providing the greatest lift-height above water of any quay cranes in the UK.

They are for the third berth at the container terminal, providing additional trade infrastructure for the UK when the berth opens later this year.

Another two cranes for the third berth are due to arrive in London next week, moving development of the terminal’s third berth onto the next stage.

Once the third berth is open, DP World London Gateway will have 1250 meters of quay wall, providing three deep-water berths and more ultra-large container vessel capacity than any other port in the UK.
