Konecranes secures order for new Copenhagen terminal

Konecranes to deliver container handling equipment for new Copenhagen terminal

Konecranes has won a public tender from Copenhagen Malmö Port (CMP) to supply container handling equipment for a new container terminal in Copenhagen.

Eight hybrid straddle carriers will be delivered in Q4 2023, and two Ship-To-Shore (STS) cranes are scheduled for delivery in Q1 2025.

The order was booked in Q2 2023.

The existing container terminal in Copenhagen will reportedly move a few kilometres to another location in Ydre Nordhavn, with completion scheduled for 2025.

CMP is responsible for the operational activities and for the machines that will handle containers at the terminal.

“It will be a future-proof terminal that will serve customers at a high level and ensure the best possible supply of goods and products to Zealand,” said Povl Dolleris Røjkjær Ungar, COO, Copenhagen Malmö Port.

“In such a busy port we demand high performance from our equipment, but we also want to be one of the most sustainable ports in the world by 2025.

“The hybrid straddle carriers from Konecranes provide the same power as fully diesel machines while significantly lowering on-site exhaust emissions,” Ungar added.

Earlier this month, Belgian logistic company, Zuidnatie, ordered a Generation 6 Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Crane as an easily adaptable, high-performance hybrid solution at Antwerp.
