Project Pilgrim is a £33 million upgrade to Immingham Container Terminal to future proof the terminal and extends its footprint.

Currently, there are six electric Rubber Tyre Gantry cranes travelling from China to the Port of Immingham which are due to arrive in January 2020.

The 6 electric RTGs were built at Rainbow Cargotec in Jiangsu for Kalmar. Powered by AC drive fed from a central source through cable reels.

The 16 wheel,1 over 6, 7 + 1 RTGs are due to arrive in Immingham in January and will be used to stack containers in the largest port, by tonnage, in the UK.

Simon Bird, Regional Director of ABP Humber, said: “The investment in this infrastructure is key to ABP’s expansion plans at the Humber Container Terminal on the Port of Immingham. The electric rubber tyre gantry cranes will also reduce fuel consumption by 95%, against non-electric, and will, therefore, complement our efforts to reduce emissions.”

ABP has continued to invest in the Humber Ports this year to ensure that we have the infrastructure needed to seize opportunities in 2020.
