Famous five for Liverpool

November 3 - Zhen Hua 23, Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industries' (ZPMC) giant semi-submersible has made a spectacular delivery of five ship-to-shore megamax quayside cranes for the new Liverpool2 container terminal.

The cranes, which were also produced by ZPMC, originally set off from Shanghai in August.

They are the first of eight ship-to-shore megamax cranes and 22 cantilever rail-mounted gantry cranes being supplied to Peel Ports as part of the company's GBP300 million (USD462.5 million) investment programme to expand and develop the existing Port of Liverpool.

Each crane measures 92 m high to the top of the frame and 132 m high when the boom is raised. Each crane weighs around 1,600 tonnes.
