The new multi-purpose crane is a Liebherr LHM 280 with a maximum hook lift capacity of 84 tonnes
The port has acquired the new crane to give it greater capabilities to handle larger cargoes, both bulk and piece goods.
Richard Goffin, Port Director at Great Yarmouth said: “The crane marks our latest investment into the development of the port at Great Yarmouth, which also included the integration of the river port and deepwater harbour which were acquired in 2015.
The crane is capable of turning over up to 35 cycles per hour.
Among those benefitting from the investment is ASCO, which handles materials and logistics for the offshore wind energy industry.
Glenn Hurren, UK Managing Director at ASCO, said: "The crane will provide further operational efficiencies and enhance our UK Southern North Sea operations. Our customers will benefit from the increased handling capabilities and shorter timescales for the mobilisation and demobilisation of cargo."
