DP World Australia has ordered four new ZPMC super post-panamax container cranes which are scheduled for delivery on October 2017.

The AU$60m investment hopes to boost productivity and capacity through its east coast operations.

Its Brisbane and Sydney terminals will receive one additional crane each, and the Melbourne terminal will receive two new cranes.

Max Kruse, DP World Austrlia’s chief operations officer, said: “The last two super post-panamax cranes ZPMC delivered to DP World Australia in 2015 were handed over to onsite operations in record time with no disruption to our customers. We are confident of a similar or better outcome with the next four.”

The new cranes will have the latest technology and environmentally friendly LED lighting, and will be fitted with ergonomically designed cabins for improved driver comfort.

Its design review was completed last week and long lead time components have been ordered and manufacturing will start in early 2017.

Mr Kruse concluded: “The $60m investment in new crane infrastructure follows two major contract wins for DP World Australia.”

“The A3 consortium’s decision to award seven of nine port calls on the Asia to Australia service, and the return of Swire Shipping’s Papua New Guinea and Pacific Islands service to our Brisbane and Sydney terminals.”
