Arrival of five CRMG cranes at Port of Liverpool marks significant milestone for growth


Arrival of five CRMG cranes at Port of Liverpool marks significant milestone for growth just as we get Freeport status.


The arrival will drive forward regional growth as part of the Liverpool City Region’s successful freeport bid.


The Port of Liverpool welcomed on 4th March 2021, a further arrival of five cantilever rail-mounted gantry (CRMG) cranes as part of the next phase of growth at Liverpool2, the port’s deep-water container terminal.


Produced by leading Chinese manufacturer, Zhenhua Heavy Industries Co (ZPMC), the five new cranes are the second of two deliveries in 2021, which will complete the set of 22 CRMG cranes operating as part of the £400 million Liverpool2 project and will provide additional capacity for growing volumes of cargo.



Their arrival coincides with the Liverpool City Region’s successful application for freeport status, which will create a further opportunity to position the area at the forefront of the UK’s future global trading relationships.


Announced by the Government yesterday, a free trade zone for the Liverpool City Region will contribute around £850m GVA and create 14,000 jobs, as well as leading solutions to meet local Net Zero Carbon targets for 2040.


The bid, submitted last month to government, enjoyed widespread support from the private sector and was supported and formally endorsed by the Liverpool City Region LEP building on the area’s maritime history and unique position as a Western-facing port with established Transatlantic and Irish Sea trade links.


David Huck, Managing Director, Group Ports said: “While we are only one of the partners in this public and private sector joint initiative, the Port of Liverpool is clearly the largest global gateway to the new regional freeport. How we see our role is helping with wider city region to achieve the greatest possible benefit from its freeport status.”


“The £400m investment we have made on the Liverpool2 container terminal is a huge enabler. It’s the combination of the outstanding facilities here and the freeport status for the region that will really make the difference.”


“The arrival of the last batch of CRMG cranes at the Port of Liverpool this week, marks a significant milestone in the next phase of growth at Liverpool2 and reflects the dynamism and strength of our business and skilled workforce.”


Peel Ports Group, with its partner global terminal business, Terminal Investment Limited Sarl, is continuing to develop the Liverpool2 terminal to further increase capabilities and support increased demand.


Once completed, Liverpool2 will be capable of handling the largest container ships in the world, whilst supporting the UK haulage sector via the very latest landside automated gates and vehicle booking systems.


Work on this second phase of the landside project is expected to be fully completed in the summer 2021 and will be supported by the creation of more than 150 new skilled jobs in Merseyside this year.


Some amazing photos were shared on Twitter of the cranes arriving...
