Pictured: Spectacular views from the top of ABP's £10.5m cranes

By Hull Daily Mail | Posted: 31 May 2018

It has been more than three months since ABP's new cranes - worth £10.5m - arrived in Hull.

The 600-tonne, 50m-high pieces of equipment dominate the skyline in and around the city's docks, and were shipped into Hull in February.

Humber Business' Phil Winter was given the chance to scale one of the enormous cranes - and the views from the top did not disappoint.

With a view of the docks and Siemens Gamesa's factory in one direction, and the Saltend Chemicals Park the other, the cranes also provide a stunning view out into the River Humber.

ABP has committed to invest a total of £50m in its container terminals on the Humber, located in Immingham and Hull, in response to continued growth in demand.  Simon Bird, ABP Humber director, said: "This major investment underlines our confidence in the future as growth in our container business looks set to continue in the years ahead."
