Konecranes has received a repeat order from Terminal San Giorgio S.r.L. (TSG) in Italy for a GottWald Model 7 Mobile Harbour Crane.
The order was received in the first quarter of 2018 and is set to be commissioning in Genoa in June 2018.
The new crane will handle containers, general cargo and project cargo at the multi-purpose terminal – featuring a lifting capacity of 150 tonnes and an outreach of 54m.

The diesel/electric hybrid crane will be designed to use power from the ports grid in an energy-efficient way, reducing the cranes overall energy consumption and combating local exhaust emissions.
The newly commissioned crane is the second of TSG’s second Model 7 harbour crane – the first began operation in 2013.
Managing Director of TSG, Maurizio Anselmo, said: “Our existing Model 7 crane from Konecranes, with its level of performance and reliability, has helped to enhance our handling capacity.
“Moreover, the competence and availability of the local Konecranes services team has been impressive. This is why we opted for a Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbour Crane again.
“Together, the two versatile cranes will help us to fully exploit the potential of our terminals, which is the premier multi-purpose terminal in the port of Genoa.”
Regional Sales Manager of Konecranes Port Solutions, Gino Gherri, said: “This order from TSG confirms the positives 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.”
