DP World Australia’s Brisbane terminal has welcomed the first of two quay cranes to be delivered to the facility in 2018.

The new crane arrived onboard vessel Zhen Hua 21 into the Port of Brisbane on March 5, along with three additional cranes for DP World Australia’s Melbourne and Sydney terminals.

The crane was manufactured by Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industries Company Limited (ZPMC).

“The delivery of the cranes is a key part of DP World Australia’s national investment of AUD 180 million in port equipment for all of our terminals. This is an important investment for our future terminal operations,” Max Kruse, DP World Australia’s Chief Officer Operations, Terminals, commented.

Once commissioned, the new cranes are expected to produce increased operational efficiencies and capability for the terminal, according to Glenn Wayne, DP World Australia, Brisbane Terminal General Manager Operations.

“The new crane, with a boom outreach of 51 metres can service larger vessels which increases our capacity, and ability to service vessels faster. This is a fantastic investment for our Brisbane terminal which will enable the terminal to work vessels with even greater proficiency,” Wayne said.

As part of the investment, a total of nine cranes will be delivered and fully operational by October 2018 at DP World Australia’s four terminals in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Fremantle.
