The Mitsubishi FD55N contributing at the local Port of Felixstowe

Written by Rob Cramsie on 11th July 2017


Mega Vessel Capacity at the Port Of Felixstowe continues to grow - The Port has been at the forefront of the container industry for over 40 years and the opening of Berths 8&9 in 2011 and its further development will secure its position long into the future.

Berths 8&9 were the first in the UK to handle the world’s largest container ship, the 19,224 TEU (Twenty-foot Equivalent Units) mega vessel the MSC Oscar. 

With the expansion plans continuing Eastern Forklifts are delighted to provide the latest Grendia Mitsubishi FD55N to assist with installation of the largest ship-to-shore cranes to secure the future growth of the Port and provide the necessary infrastructure for the UK.
