Stockholm Norvik Port container cranes officially named

Container cranes at Stockholm Norvik Port get regal names

Stockholm Norvik Port has renamed two of its two container cranes after Swedish royalty.

On 26 April 2023, Sweden’s newest freight port was officially inaugurated by His Majesty The King and Her Royal Highness The Crown Princess.

On the same day the container cranes were named after Princess Estelle of Sweden and Prince Oscar of Sweden.

The nameplates have now been installed on the cranes.

Magdalena Bosson, CEO Ports of Stockholm, said: “It was an honour and a privilege to have a royal official opening of Stockholm Norvik Port with both HM The King and HRH The Crown Princess in attendance.”

The two super-post-Panamax cranes are some of the largest on Sweden’s east coast and can handle the largest container vessels operating in the Baltic Sea, according to the port.

The cranes stand 120 metres tall in their maximum positions and have a lifting capacity of just over 80 tonnes.

The cranes are remotely operated from the port’s main building, with no operator on the cranes themselves, and 80 per cent of the lifting is automated.
