'World premiere' for the port of Rotterdam


The Marstal Maersk was on 05-01-2015 the first large container ship that was unloaded at a terminal with unmanned fully automatic cranes on Maasvlakte 2.

The crane operators are not being made redundant, they are now no longer in the cranes but in the office behind a screen with a joy-stick.
With larger ships larger cranes are needed. These new cranes run so fast that it is physically no longer possible to operate by man, as crane operators will get to much G-forces to endure. Therefore the robot cranes are operated remotely.
