Two new Gottwald 820 cranes were delivered in June to the Humber International Terminal of Associated British Ports (ABP) at Immingham.
The machines which tower over the terminal at 34m high and can lift a maximum of 100 tonnes, were delivered by ship and discharged fully-assembled.
The cranes were bought as part of an assets replacement scheme which had been set up by ABP to ensure the company continues to provide high and efficient productivity rates to their customers.
An additional grab capacity of 50cu m means that the terminal now benefits from a higher discharge rate and the cranes can handle a variety of products.
The terminal handles solid fuel for power generators and is able to accommodate ships carrying up to 130,000 tonnes.
