OVERVIEW

London Gateway is a unique development that combines the UK’s newest deep-sea container port with Europe’s largest logistics park, using world-leading technology to increase productivity and reduce costs.

John F Hunt worked for CargoTec & 4Tronic who provide cargo and load handling solutions.

CHALLENGES

Our works involve diamond core drilling 30,000 plus 32mm diameter holes into the asphalt/concrete to install magnets within the dock concourse, enabling the robotic loaders to transport the containers around the site to their holding place.

Being open to the elements and on the fore shore meant continually battling with the strong winds and driving rain coming off the estuary.

ACHIEVEMENTS

Successful installation of all magnets within the time frame provided assisting the project to come in on target.
