For the first time a gantry crane has been built for a container terminal in the SCHMIDT Group – At Hamm-Uentrop. Since August 2020 the gantry crane is up and running.
Lift hight is 12.7 m, which allows three containers to be stacked. Working radius to load trucks and trains is 10 m and with its working load of 42 ton the gantry crane is capable to lift 20 – 40 ft. containers. Due to its speed and lifting capabilities it is possible to execute 96 lifts during 8 hours.
Total amount of investment (gantry crane incl. infrastructure) ranges to 2.5 million Euro. Reason for this investment is the increase of storage volume from 320 containers to 800 TEU.
