A must-see near our office: Antwerp’s Harbour Cranes
Did you know that just a stone’s throw from our Antwerp Strand Associates office lies one of the engineering wonders of Belgium?
The Antwerp Harbor Cranes! These 17 abandoned harbour cranes were once used to unload cargo from ships in the Antwerp harbour. They are now preserved by the MAS museum as examples of industrial technology. The oldest is a wooden crane from 1907. The more modern electric crane with the number 400 KA was built in 1950, while 410 KD dates from 1961.
Engineering expert tip: The next time you come to visit our office, plan some time to visit the Harbor Cranes! They are situated on the Rijnkaai, near Hangar 27.
