Local firm to supply Durban crane componentsBack
© Reuse this Local company DCD-Dorbyl Heavy Engineering Venco has secured a contract to manufacture components for three ship-to-shore cranes destined for Durban harbour. The company manufactures large components, including cranes, and was selected by contractor IMPSA Port Systems, of Argentina, which is supplying three post-panamax quay cranes for the Port of Durban.
A total of 540 t of steel will be used in the manufacture of the crane components, the largest being 24-m long, 2-m tall and 1,8-m wide.
The new ship-to-shore cranes will increase Durban harbour’s container handling efficiency and capability.
Durban is currently considered Africa’s busiest port and handled over 1,3-million containers during 2002.
