DP World Berbera, a regional maritime hub in the Horn of Africa, has welcomed the arrival of three new ship-to-shore gantry cranes, as part of its current project to expand and further develop the Port of Berbera. The three cranes were brought to the port by the vessel Zhen-Hua 29, and were safely off-loaded in a meticulously planned exercise carried out by DP World Berbera’s management and engineering team.

The cranes, at 51 meters high, each has a capacity of 65 tons with an outer reach of 24 rows of containers, and will be able to serve some of the largest container ships afloat today, allowing importers and exporters to make the most of the resulting economies of scale. The arrival of the cranes follows the installation of eight new rubber-tyred gantry (RTG) cranes at the port earlier in January this year.

DP World Berbera is a true multi-use port whose customers handle a wide variety of cargo ranging from General Cargo, Bulk Cargo, RORO, Livestock and Containerized Cargo.

DP World has committed to investing up to USD 442 million to expand the port, and once completed it will increase capacity by 500,000 TEUs per year.
