Associated British Ports (ABP) has invested GB£2.3m in a new energy efficient crane that will decrease energy consumption by 35%.

The Mantsinen 120M materials handler, fitted with a HybriLift energy storage system, will be used at ABP’s Port of Newport in Wales. It is available with an electric or diesel engine.

Andrew Harston, regional director of ABP Wales & Short Sea Ports, said: “The Port of Newport plays a major role in supporting international trade. Our operations support a diverse range of customers and commodities and we are constantly evolving to accommodate dynamic market trends. The purchase of this adaptable and energy efficient crane will help us enhance the services we provide to our current and future port customers.”

ABP’s Port of Newport handles a wide mix of cargo, including steel, forest products, and bulk materials for the agricultural sector. The Mantsinen 120M is suited to the Port of Newport as it can easily be fitted with different attachments to safely handle these commodities.

The crane was purchased through Cooper Specialised Handling, which are an exclusive UK distributor of Mantsinen hydraulic cranes.
