Finland : Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Cranes in Service in Copenhagen Malmo Port.

Konecranes has strengthened its presence in Scandinavia with two Konecranes Gottwald Model 6 Mobile Harbor Cranes. The cranes have been handling scrap and dry bulk materials in Malm, Sweden since the autumn of 2017.

Copenhagen Malm Port (CMP) purchased the eco-efficient electric four-rope grab cranes during the first half of 2017 as part of a long-term investment in port infrastructure. Three new terminals have been built in Malm, Swedens third-largest city, in the past few years.

Teis Lind, Purchasing Manager, CMP, explains: Our terminals in Malm, like those in Copenhagen, are hubs for freight that is transported onward to/from national as well as international ports. In the past, we used rail-mounted cranes and other quayside equipment for our operations. Facing a growing need to serve larger vessels, we decided to opt for state-of-the-art mobile harbor crane technology from Konecranes. Our two new cranes provide higher capacity and are particularly robust, a key criterion in continuous-duty scrap and dry bulk handling. From the start, they have been efficient and maintenance-friendly, helping us to increase handling rates significantly.

Hans-Juergen Schneider, Regional Sales Manager, Konecranes Port Solutions, says, We are pleased that one of the largest Scandinavian port operators opted for Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Cranes. The new cranes have been fitted with an external power feed to hook them up to the terminals grid, helping CMP to become significantly more eco-efficient.

The two Model 6 four-rope grab cranes provide a maximum lifting capacity of 125 t, an outreach of up to 51 m and a high-performance grab curve. To handle scrap efficiently, they have been supplied with orange peel grabs.
