Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Crane for Italian multi-purpose terminal

Konecranes has won a repeat order from Terminal San Giorgio S.r.L. (TSG) for a Konecranes Gottwald Model 7 Mobile Harbor Crane. The order was received in the first quarter of 2018, and the crane will be commissioned in June 2018 in Genoa.

The mobile harbor crane will handle containers, general cargo and project cargo in the multi-purpose terminal. It will be prepared to use power from the port’s grid in the future for more eco-efficient operation. This will reduce the crane’s energy consumption and eliminate its exhaust emissions.

The diesel-electric crane will be TSG’s second Model 7 mobile harbor crane. The first one began operation in 2013. Maurizio Anselmo, Managing Director, TSG, explains: “Our existing Model 7 crane from Konecranes, with its high level of performance and reliability, has helped to enhance our handling capacity. Moreover, the competence and availability of the local Konecranes service team has been impressive. This is why we opted for a Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Crane again. Together, the two versatile cranes will help us to fully exploit the potential of our terminal, which is the premier multi-purpose terminal in the port of Genoa.”

Gino Gherri, Regional Sales Manager, Konecranes Port Solutions, says: “This order from TSG confirms the positive market development in Italy. Terminal operators are investing in their infrastructure with an eye on state-of-the-art technology, and many of them are opting for our design and concept. We are pleased to strengthen our presence in Italy’s biggest port, Genoa, where terminals are experiencing an increasing demand for high-quality services.”

The Model 7 two-rope crane in the G HMK 7608 variant provides a strong lifting curve with a maximum lifting capacity of 150 t, and an outreach of up to 54 m. For particularly efficient container handling, it will be equipped with a twin-lift spreader providing a lifting capacity of up to 60 t under spreader.
