Cranes Arrive at DP World in Brisbane Fully Erected

Tags: ASC, DP World

Phase 2 of the DP World Brisbane Automatic Stacking Cranes (ASC) project has kicked off with a successful delivery.

The shipment carrying two new, 9-wide ASC arrived at DPW on project schedule and in perfect condition. The two ASC were transported fully erected from China to Australia and unloaded in Brisbane in July. This delivery completes Module 1, which is an addition to existing seven ASC modules.

“The arrival of the vessel carrying two fully-erected ASC was really impressive. DP World and Kalmar staff alike were excited to watch as the vessel pulled into the port. Kalmar would like to congratulate and thank everyone involved,” said Jyri Saarijoki, Project Director, Kalmar. “The successful shipment of fully-erected cranes from China to Australia with efficient delivery onto the terminal is an important milestone for Kalmar and validates the method as an efficient and proven concept.”

The delivery of the two Kalmar ASC marks the fourth successful fully erected ASC shipment from China to Australia. To date, Kalmar has provided DP World in Brisbane with 16 Kalmar ASC and 16 Kalmar shuttle carriers integrated with Navis N4 terminal operating system (TOS). The two new ASC bring the number of modules servicing the container trade to eight and increase capacity by 14 per cent to 720,000 TEU.
