Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Crane to handle bulk materials in Rotterdam
In the first quarter of 2018, Konecranes won an order from the Netherlands for a Konecranes Gottwald Model 6 Mobile Harbor Crane, scheduled to be commissioned in the summer, the company said in its press release.
European Bulk Services B.V. (EBS) purchased the four-rope grab crane to support its steadily growing bulk handling business in the long term. In Rotterdam, the diesel-electric crane will handle a range of dry bulk materials. It will be prepared to use power from the port’s grid in the future, for even more eco-efficient operation. This will reduce the crane’s energy consumption and eliminate exhaust emissions locally.
The Model 6 four-rope grab crane provides a maximum lifting capacity of 100 t, an outreach of up to 51 m and a high-performance 50-t grab curve.
