I think not. These cranes have to be close to quay side for their reach. 
I think they need to find a way of stopping these ships from having black outs - it is all too common. A simular 'return to port' fail safe needs incorporating but it will be extremely difficult on single engine stop start ships. 
Was this one a black out?  it looked like she just came in a bit fast and steep.

I don't think that it would be impossible to move the cranes along the berth e.g. so that they are behind another ship when a ship is coming into her berth, and then move them back once she is securing.  It would slow the start of unloading though, which probably rules it out.

I have no idea. But it would be highly unlikely for a ship like this to come in a bit fast and steep without some other factor in play. With the pilot onboard, the berthing plan and the equipment in use it shouldn't come to this unless something goes wrong! 

In regard to the cranes, most quays do not allow for much movement as each berth will have multiple cranes, therefore not allowing for one set of cranes to move to another berth out of the way. Again, not knowing this particular incident, this ship may not have even been berthing at that exact spot if it hadn't lost control.

FRS-DFDS's Poniente Jet had a bump in Ceuta causing no reported injuries but quite a bit of localised damage to the front end of one of her hulls. Picture on this link on Ferrybalear -

Pelni's Meyer Werft-built KM Umsini has been ablaze in Indonesia. The evacuation seems somewhat chaotic.
