The cranes have a span of 43 metres and can span 14 containers wide and stack 1 over 6 containers high, with a safe working load of 40 tonnes under a telescopic spreader and the lift height over the rail is 21 metres.
Other recent deliveries of RMGs include two cranes to the Port of Southampton and two cranes for Vladivostok, Russia.
