Konecranes delivers eight straddle carriers to Copenhagen Malmö Port

Konecranes has handed over eight hybrid Konecranes Noell Straddle Carriers to Copenhagen Malmö Port (CMP).

These straddle carriers were ordered in Q2 2023 and are intended for the new container terminal in Copenhagen. The parts were delivered to CMP in Q4 last year and have been assembled and extensively tested on-site at the current container terminal.

Next year, the existing container terminal will be relocated a few kilometres to a new and better location in Ydre Nordhavn. By & Havn, one of CMP’s owners, is the developer of the container terminal, while CMP is responsible for the equipment and for operating the terminal.

The new terminal is expected to play a crucial role in regional development, supplying the growing Copenhagen capital area and the rest of Zealand with goods and commodities and catering to the export needs of businesses in the region.

The new straddle carriers can lift containers one-over-three, unlike the ones currently used at the existing terminal, which lift one-over-two. This means that more containers can be stored in the same space.

At the beginning of 2025, Konecranes will also deliver two electric Ship-to-Shore (STS) cranes to CMP for the new terminal.

“The new straddle carriers represent a significant step toward CMP’s goal to achieve climate neutrality in our operations by 2025,” said Povl Dolleris Røjkjær Ungar, COO of Copenhagen Malmö Port.

“These machines run on fossil-free HVO100* biodiesel instead of fossil diesel and utilise modern hybrid electric technology, consuming significantly less fuel than previous equipment. With these new machines, efficiency and productivity will improve, meeting our customers’ demands.

Hubert Foltys, Head of Konecranes Straddle Carrier business, added: “CMP has set the bar very high in terms of energy consumption and emissions. Konecranes was able to meet and in some respects even exceed their requirements with these straddle carriers.

“We are grateful for CMP’s trust in our technology and performance, and look forward to building on our good relationship as we move forward.”
