Associated British Ports (ABP) Invested £4.2 million in a new project Liebherr LHM 420 mobile port crane for the port of Hull. The new crane on board MV Meri arrived at King George V Quay, where it was unloaded by ABP and Liebherr operations teams.

ABP is introducing an investment plan that will ensure high levels of safety at all its ports, while increasing efficiency and reducing emissions.

The new crane is also equipped with a revolutionary hybrid propulsion system. The energy generated by reducing the load, along with excess energy from the conversion drive, is converted into an accumulator that allows power to be increased when necessary, although the primary power delivery remains unchanged, which helps conserve fuel.

Simon Bird, ABP Humber Regional Director, He said: “We look at every investment we make to ensure we are working towards our goal of ‘Ready for Tomorrow’ while meeting the needs of our port tenants and our customers. “Humber Ports provides great connectivity to northern markets and a multi-skilled team of longshoremen to deliver safe and timely operations. “

Earlier this year, the Academic Bridge Program launched its “Ready for Tomorrow” sustainability strategy. Supported by a £2 billion investment, the strategy sets out how ABP will decarbonise its own operations by 2040 and support major infrastructure projects to enable a wider energy transition in the UK.
