Demag overhead travelling cranes are used to lift heavy loads for the mechanical and plant engineering sector at the world’s largest inland port in Duisburg. Transformers, turbines or entire production installations now start their journey from Duisburg to destinations all over the world. To ensure smooth operation in the new Heavy Lift Terminal Duisburg (HTD) and other freight-related logistics services, the decision was made to invest in crane systems. The same applies in the Nordhafen sector, where the range of services was extended from assembly and storage to logistics with the construction of a new packing bay.
The HTD terminal features a heavy lift bay that measures 2,000 m² in size. The decision in favour of overhead travelling cranes was made at an early stage to ensure that the storage operation and other preparations for loading can be carried out in an environment protected from the weather. Weather-protection equipment such as a canopy for the open-winch units and a special paint finish for all components provide for smooth operation outdoors. Four of the pillars that support the crane runway stand in the harbour basin. The 95.3 m-long crane runway extends beyond the quayside, which makes it possible to handle heavy loads weighing up to 250 t at the berth. An onboard wind measuring device reports strong winds starting from wind strength 6 by means of acoustic and optical signals. The crane is then driven inside the protective bay within three minutes. A double-girder overhead travelling crane equipped with a DR 20 wire rope hoist that is rated for loads weighing up to 25 t operates on the crane runway at a height of 13.6 m. This crane performs the storage and retrieval operations in the bay and is used for loading and unloading railway wagons and trucks. If the installed crane capacity reaches its limits in some cases, duisport is well prepared for heavy lifting in the future. Components even weighing up to 500 t can be handled with the help of a mobile crane, which can be used on a special heavy load pallet.
由3个隔间组成的建筑群是Nordhafen区的一大特色。新的包装大楼建在7000平方米的多功能大楼旁边。在面积为5000 m²的区域内，准备了用于复杂工业装置的部件，以便在包装厂房内进一步运输。这座建筑不仅扩大了储存货物的可能性，其内部的起重机容量和受保护的储存区域也使半成品和成品部件得以组装和维护。三个隔间各安装两台桥式起重机。配有两个50吨起重装置的双梁桥式起重机在建筑物的第一部分行驶。通过串联操作起重机，该起重机也可用于运输长物料。一台跨度22000mm的25t ZKKE双梁桥式起重机也在同一跑道上运行。它提供从0.3到5.3 m/min的起重速度，从5到25 m/min的横向移动和从5到60 m/min的长距离移动。Nordhafen地区这座建筑中175 m长的起重机跑道也延伸到港池。这使得船舶可以直接装卸，码头墙和建筑物之间的区域可以充分用于储存。相邻的两个建筑区域均配备相同的25吨双梁桥式起重机。在大楼一侧提供了卡车通道，与港池平行，以便在大楼内直接在岸上装卸货物。铁路轨道穿过建筑物，在码头区结束，这也有利于Nordhafen区的三联运输。
