Kalmar will be responsible for the turnkey project, including planning and
engineering, the execution of the heightening, and commissioning. The cranes,
which have been operational since 2005, are to be heightened by six metres to
accommodate larger vessels entering the port. This is in anticipation of
significant growth in container movements.

evolve around capacity and more and more upon capability. We at DP World
Antwerp Gateway are confident in Kalmar being able to deliver this project
and allowing us to meet these needs in a practical and effective manner.
Ultimately collectively serving the demands of our shipping line customers."

efficiency are high on our agenda. With professional planning and execution
of an upgrade project, disruption on the terminal's operational efficiency
during the project can be minimised." He continues: "DP World is naturally a
very important and long-standing customer to Kalmar. They are a progressive,
forward-thinking organisation and totally focused on improving the efficiency
of their container handling operations. I am delighted to work with them

The highly specialist operation will be achieved by inserting leg extensions
underneath the portal beams in the existing flange junctions. The project
will also include the installation of consequential structural reinforcements
in crane travel and trolley travel direction. The heightening of the crane
structure is achieved by means of jacking towers and hydraulic jacks,
including all bracings for horizontal forces to ensure optimum safety during
the process.
