About this event

Andrew Bowen, Head of Technical at DP World London Gateway will explain how the largest quay cranes in the world came to be installed at the UKs newest and most advanced deep-sea port. At a colossal 138m tall and weighing 2000t each, these mammoth structures were delivered ready-assembled by sea from China. Andrew will explain the engineering behind the phenomenal achievement of loading and delivering the cranes safely, then winching them onshore and into their final positions.

This event is free. Refreshments will be served from 6.00pm and the lecture will start at 6.30pm. Booking is not essential but helps us with planning.

Please note this is a change to the previously advertised date and topic for ICE Essex's November meeting.
