LIMASSOL, Cyprus: January 23, 2019. DP World Limassol has upgraded its multipurpose port terminal with the delivery by the Dutch marine outsize cargo carrier RollDock of a new, high-tech mobile harbour crane and a reach stacker.

DP World says the new equipment will be used for the loading and unloading of general cargo, breakbulk and oil and gas equipment, enhancing the efficiency, productivity and safety of port operations and reducing vessel turnaround time.

ROLLDOCK CYPRUS“The new equipment is an integral part of our commitment to provide high quality trade enabling services in Cyprus,” explained DP World Limassol general manager, Charles Meaby. “The LHM 420 mobile harbour crane from Liebherr is a great investment for the Port. With its heavy lifting capability, innovative services the new crane will help maximise the multipurpose port’s potential.

Igor Nedelchenko, Area Sales manager for Liebherr Mobile Harbour Cranes added: “The new cranes will enable DP World Limassol to work more universally and with a higher turnover at all berths of the terminal. The SOLAS-compliant weighing system installed in both units will benefit both the operation and maintenance.”

In April 2016 DP World was awarded a 25-year concession to manage the three-quay, multipurpose terminal in Limassol. In addition to a new passenger facility capable of handling the world’s largest cruise ships, operations include break-bulk, general cargo, RoRo, and oil & gas services.

The company says it wants to improve the port’s prospects for the long term, leading to job creation and better services for the wider Cypriot business community.

In a related move, this week DP World subsidiary P&O Ferries announced it was to transfer the registry of its six cross-Channel ferries from the UK to Cyprus due to the continued political uncertainty surrounding a post-Brexit Britain.
