A crane has fallen off a wharf in Lower Hutt, north of Wellington.

The 20-tonne crane, operated by a civil contracting company, fell off the CentrePort Seaview Wharf about midday today.

A spokesperson said the driver of the crane did not go into the water, and is not hurt.

The wharf itself is not damaged.

An investigation is underway, and the Harbourmaster and WorkSafe have been told.

The crane fell into 12 metres of water - and a plan to fish it out is underway.
