Two reach stackers and one empty container handler have been delivered to Co.Na.Te.Co. S.p.A. (Conateco), Italy, making the biggest terminal operator in the Port of Naples the owner of the first Konecranes Liftace branded machines on the market.
The machines will be part of a diversified fleet of container handling machines at Conateco.
Pasquale Legora De Feo, Managing Director at Conateco, said: “We have relied on technology from Konecranes’ legacy brands for more than 20 years.
“The equipment is operated in our entire terminal and includes a fleet of reach stackers as well as mobile harbor cranes, STS cranes and RTG cranes.
“We are sure that the new lift trucks will help us to further extend our leading position in Naples.”
The Konecranes Liftace R 5-31 reach stacker stacks up to five high-cube containers (9‘6‘‘) of up to 45 tons in the first row and the Konecranes Liftace E 6-8 empty container handler stacks up to six high-cube containers (9‘6‘‘) and provides a load capacity of eight tons.
Naples' new machines are equipped with engines that correspond to the EU Stage IV (EPA Tier 4 final) emission standard.
Moreover, an optional automatic greasing system for major components, such as chassis, boom or spreader is included in the three lift trucks.
The two reach stackers are also equipped with rear-view cameras.
