In 2011 DP World Melbourne received approval to go to the market for a Post Panamax Ship to Shore container crane, for its Port of Melbourne West Swanson Terminal, in order to better service our customers.
Once the technical and operational specification had been determined and written, a request for tender was published to four crane OEM’s via DP World’s electronic tendering system iSpec.
The elements to this project:-
1. Select winning vendor
2. Design review and clarifications
4. Third party inspection
5. Site assembly
6. Owner inspection
7. Testing, endurance and acceptance
8. Crane relocation within the existing quay profile
