The project, which includes dredging of some 1.55 million m3 of material along seven kilometres of the channel, would allow access for larger vessels at the Port of Adelaide, providing South Australian traders the cost benefits of using these vessels on the Australian trades.

Additionally, the widening operation, scheduled to start in autumn 2018, would increases the attractiveness and competitiveness of the Port of Adelaide to shipping lines, as well as increases competitiveness of the container shipping market.

“Without widening the channel to accommodate these new larger vessels, containerised trade and cruise shipping will omit Adelaide from their shipping calls,” Vincent Tremaine, CEO of Flinders Port Holdings, said.

In 2014, Adelaide saw 37 ships exceed the design width of the channel. In 2017, the number jumped to 312 and the ships continue to increase in size, demonstrating the need to be able to accommodate the rapidly increasing trend of Post Panamax-sized vessels.

 In certain situations a stiff boom crane even has a superior ability to reach over obstructions such as fences or walls where other cranes may fail.

 Not only are the important moving parts of the stiff boom protected inside the machinery, they are also less strained when lifting a load, as energy goes to its winch first, then to the lift cylinder, and then the actual crane structure.
