Poole Harbour Commissioners handle various cargoes which include ball clay, roadstone, timber, rebar, beams, pipes, bricks, sand, organic animal feeds and grains. They also supply the Channel Islands, three times per week.
“As a Port we are getting busier, but we were mindful that our existing Port Cranes were getting older, which in simple terms is the reason we decided to order a new machine. We have a relationship with SENNEBOGEN and E H Hassell & Sons, which started over 10 years ago and having looked around the market, we liked what we saw with regards to the SENNEBOGEN Harbour Crawler Cranes. A visit was arranged to see a 6130 HCC in action and after this we started to work on a specification along with SENNEBOGEN and E H Hassell & Sons that matched our requirements. The basic specification included a compact crane, with high duties as we handle high volumes of rebar in the port, some bundles can be up to 25 tonnes, the 4 metre pylon was critical along with the unique telescopic elevating cab, which gives our operators an excellent eye level height and the ability to easily adjust to their required level, dependent upon what cargo they are handling. We also included a hydraulic tag line to operate bulk grabs up to 20 tonnes capacity, efficiently and safely. From our side we have future proofed the machine, which will allow us to grow our business in coming years” commented Paul Gillingham – Engineering Manager at Poole Harbour Commissioners.
Ian Hassell, Managing Director of the SENNEBOGEN sales and service partner E.H. Hassell & Sons Ltd., added at the official handover, "We have a long standing relationship with Poole Harbour Commissioners and see this new addition to their SENNEBOGEN fleet as sentiment that they are happy with the quality of the product, reliability and most importantly our parts and service support. Like all our ports customers we work closely with them and SENNEBOGEN to make 100% certain, what they require we collectively deliver.”
