London Gateway installs crane system
The new container port being built in the Thames is to receive automated stacking cranes to improve the London Gateway.
The purpose of the cranes is to help develop the reliability of operations and ensure efficient processes 24 hours a day, even in harsher weather conditions that would of potentially forced non automated systems to close.
Stephen Hammond, UK Transport Minister was the first to witness some of 40 cranes being constructed at the London site.
An independent study predicted that more than 65 million road miles and 148,000 tons of CO2 emissions will be eliminated from the UKs supply chains when London Gateway is fully built.
