Konecranes will deliver its Gottwald Model 6 Mobile Harbour Cranes to terminal operator SERMI at the Port of Pozzallo as the terminal expands its capacity.
Expected to be delivered in May 2021, SERMI is increasing its fleet of mobile harbour cranes at the Mediterranean harbour which handles bulk, container, and general cargo.
The crane will increase the handling performance and reduce the operator’s overall carbon footprint due to its diesel-electric drive.
Vincenzo Venniro, owner and CEO of SERMI, said, “For many years, we’ve provided the best industry services for our clients, who include some major local shipping lines.
“Our new Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbour crane will help us to continue meeting increasing customer demand for the traffic of containers worldwide at the highest level of quality, and in a more sustainable way.”
Gino Gherri, Regional Sales Manager for Konecranes Port Solutions, added, “The advanced electric drive at the heart of our cranes and the high performance that results perfectly fit the productivity and sustainability needs of SERMI.
“This agreement builds on years of good cooperation and we look forward to continuing on this path into the future.”
The order, booked in Q1 2021, highlights Konecranes’ commitment to the growth and transformation of customers and industries so they run more efficiently, sustainably and safely.
