Southampton extends crane rails a crucial 120m

DP World Southampton extends crane rails a crucial 120m to end of main quay

Part of DP World’s £40M investment this year at Southampton container terminal, the 120m crane rail extension has foundations reaching 26m below the ground and took 16 weeks to build. It will facilitate the movement along the quay of three or four of the terminal’s 12 Liebherr cranes.

 

The new configuration is designed to maximise utilisation and will save customers’ time by speeding up quayside loading and unloading.

 

Together with the granting of permission for a third berth to be dredged down to a depth of more than 15m, and the addition of a second EC park scheduled for September, the investment will take Southampton up to the next level as a smart logistics hub, said DP World.

 

In March, London Gateway and Southampton became the first deep water ports in Britain capable of handling Freightliner’s new 775m long trains, the longest in use on the national rail network.
