DP World Berbera has welcomed the arrival of a 3rd Mobile Harbor Crane, which will further increase operational productivity at the port.
The new Mobile Harbor Crane is a multi-use crane able to handle up to 6000 TEU Post-Panamax vessels. The new crane will have a maximum lifting capacity of 84 tons and be able to lift General/Bulk cargo as well as Containerized Cargo with twin lift capability.
DP World Berbera is a true multi-use port whose customers handle a wide variety of cargo ranging from General Cargo, Bulk Cargo, RORO, Livestock and Containerized Cargo. The addition of a third Mobile Harbor Crane enables us to meet the needs of our customers and deliver the operational productivity and reliability the Berbera Port Community has come to expect from the DP World Berbera team.
In addition to the new crane, DP World Berbera is in the final stages of a major port expansion project that will add an additional 17 hectares of container yard increasing container capacity to 450,000 TEU, as well as an additional 400m of quay with 16m of depth.
Three state of the art Super Post Panamax Ship to Shore Cranes capable of working container vessels in excess of 300m, as well as 8 RTG’s will be included in the expansion. The project is scheduled to be handed over and operational in Q1 2021.
