New cranes for CentrePort Wellington

Industry Database

CentrePort Wellington is to purchase two new Liebherr quayside container cranes at US$7.14m apiece. The acquisition of the postPanamax, twin-lift capable cranes is linked to the port company's recent receipt of a coastal dredging permit to deepen its wharves and harbour entrance to accommodate coming generations of larger containerships.

CentrePort Wellington chief executive Liz Ward indicated the cranes would be a significant driver in achieving greater productivity and service reliability. "Our business strategy is to grow revenue through an integrated logistics approach to port facilities, services and property interests, " says Ms Ward. "However, CentrePort Wellington is foremost a port.

Our decision to improve our container handling services and infrastructure is to position ourselves as the leading container port in central New Zealand."

CentrePort showed a 23% rise in container throughput for the 2003-2004 financial year.
