Rotterdam World Gateway welcomes new deep sea cranes


Rotterdam World Gateway (RWG) has taken delivery of two new deep sea quay cranes, as it continues its drive to optimise services and capacity.

In a statement, RWG said the cranes were built by ZPMC and arrived from China on 23 April.

They have a lifting height of 56 meters and are capable of handling container vessels up to 26 rows wide. Together with the two quay cranes RWG has invested in 25 new Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs).

Offloading the cranes will take around ten days and they will be commissioned on the quay over the next months.

Ronald Lugthart, CEO at RWG: “The arrival of the cranes and AGVs will allow RWG to further optimize our services and capacity. RWG plays a key role in efficient, sustainable, reliable and safe container handling.

“Together with our customers, stakeholders and partners, such as DP world, we will continue to develop our services.”

In April 2019, RWG announced it had handled its 2.5 millionth deep-sea container on since it opened in September 2015, with an Ocean Network Express (ONE) vessel providing the milestone call.
