New crane expands lift capacity

May 15 - The UK's AV Dawson has strengthened its lifting capacity by investing in a new EUR2 million (USD2.57 million) mobile harbour crane.

The Gottwald HMK260E (pictured below) is capable of lifting up to 100 tonnes with all the speed and accuracy needed when handling high value project cargo.

The investment complements AV Dawson's two existing mobile harbour cranes and fills the lifting capacity gap between the current 63 tonne Gottwald and its 215 tonne capacity Heavy Lift crane, says the company.

The new arrival will mainly operate from the Dawson's North Sea Supply Base but in future could work from any of the logistic firm's adjacent quaysides, including the new deepwater berth when it is finished in early 2013.

Gary Dawson, managing director of AV Dawson, said: "This investment ensures the company is among the best UK ports in the country with regards to crane capacity and flexibility.

"It's part of our commitment to investing in the future of the company and coming up with innovative solutions to improve customers' logistics by helping them save money and improve efficiency."
