Electric hydraulic cranes at the Port of Ipswich

15 May 2022

The Port of Ipswich received two fully electric-powered hydraulic cranes as part of many other sustainable measures from Associated British Ports which have contributed to a 36% decrease in greenhouse gas emissions since 2014. For example, the Port of Ipswich has also invested in an on-site substation to future-proof sustainable portside operations that can accommodate up to four electric-powered cranes, as well as electric vans.

These new electric hydraulic cranes are estimated to save up to 5,275 tonnes of CO2 over their lifetime and can be powered by solar energy generated at the port from the approximately 4,000 rooftop solar arrays.
