Two cranes guarantee continuity

Now that the container terminal is complete, the Logistics team arranged for the old crane to be returned to its original location. This will enable Gosselin to guarantee continuity, and work even faster.

“The terminal has been undergoing construction for a long time,” explains Operations Director, Marc Eennaes. “The Albert Canal was widened and they had to pour another 4,000 m2 of concrete. This was why we decided to allow the most reliable crane to remain at the terminal, and to move the old one to the New Food site temporarily.

Both cranes are now back at the Gosselin container terminal. The Albert Canal had to be closed down twice for two hours each time. The move went smoothly thanks to great teamwork between Victrol, that provided the pontoon; Global Port, that drove the crane onto the pontoon; and the Vlaamse Waterweg (Flemish waterways authorities) that helped coordinate the entire operation.

“Even now, if one crane isn’t operational because of a breakdown or technical maintenance, we can always switch to the other one,” Marc adds. “During very busy times, we will just use both. This will enable us to guarantee continuity, and work even more efficiently.”

De opwaardering van het Albertkanaal is bijna voltooid. De ophoging van de bruggen en verbreding van het kanaal zorgen dat vierlaags containervaart voor DV containers voortaan mogelijk wordt. Ook voor Gosselin is dit goed nieuws aangezien Logistics zwaar inzet op de binnenvaart als transportmiddel.
