Konecranes will deliver two eco-efficient Gottwald Model 6 Mobile Harbour Cranes to a Cameroonian port as part expansion in cargo handling equipment.
Régie du Terminal à Conteneurs (RTC), a terminal operator at the Port of Douala, has added the fleet to its terminal as the port anticipates greater cargo throughput in the future.
Arriving in early August 2021, the cranes can service container vessels up to post-Panamax class.
A full range of smart crane features, the Model 6 Mobile Harbour Cranes offer high flexibility in handling general or heavy project cargo.
Faustin Dingana, Managing Director of RTC Douala, said, “Playing such an important part in the local economy, we need to maintain high-quality services for both Cameroonian and international clients.
“Our two new mobile harbour cranes will help us to meet increasing customer demand well into the future.”
The Model 6 cranes will provide the port with greater cargo handling capacity and help the port, which handles the majority of Cameroonian port traffic, meet new levels of efficiency and throughput.
Andreas Czwalinna, Regional Sales Manager for Konecranes Port Solutions, said, “RTC already operates a fleet of Konecranes lift trucks and mobile harbour cranes, and the fact that they have chosen us again demonstrates how the performance of our cranes helps them reach their productivity and growth objectives.”
