The phase 2 of the DP World Brisbane Automatic Stacking Cranes (ASC) project has kicked off with a delivery of two new 9-wide ASCs, according to Finnish port automation solutions provider Kalmar.

The two cranes were transported fully-erected from China to Australia and unloaded in Brisbane in July. The delivery completes Module 1 which is an addition to existing seven ASC modules, Kalmar said.

“The delivery of the two Kalmar ASCs marks the fourth successful fully erected ASC shipment from China to Australia,” the company said.

To date, Kalmar has provided DP World in Brisbane with 16 Kalmar ASCs and 16 Kalmar shuttle carriers.

The two new ASCs bring the number of modules servicing container trade to eight and increasing capacity by 14 percent to 720,000 TEU.
