Konecranes has said Magazzini Generali Silos Frigoriferi S.p.A. (MGSF) has ordered an eco-efficient Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Crane for its facility in Naples.
“This is the second mobile harbor crane we’ve bought from Konecranes, and the most powerful in our fleet,” Erik Klingenberg, Managing Director of MGSF, said in a statement.
“In the Port of Naples, we handle general cargo of high value, such as finished steel coils for the car industry and other steel products. The precision and reliability of our equipment is an asset that we can offer our customers in terms of the finest quality handling.”
The new crane will be a Konecranes Gottwald Model 5 Mobile Harbor Crane in the G HMK 5506 variant, with a working radius of up to 51m, or the 17th container row, the outreach needed for post-Panamax container ships.
Its 125t lifting capacity up to 18m and high working speed make it ideal for heavy project lifting. It serves as the perfect complement to the Model 2 mobile harbor crane that Klingenberg Group already has on-site, which can handle smaller loads up to 80t.
The new Model 5 will have built-in readiness for an external power supply, so conversion to electric operation will be easy when resources allow. It also fulfills the criteria set out in Italy’s National Industry 4.0 Plan, a state strategy that encourages industrial innovation.
Gino Gherri, Regional Sales Manager for Konecranes Port Solutions, commented: “We’re more like partners than suppliers for MGSF.
“We have a strong relationship consolidated by their good experience with our products and service. We look forward to continuing our work with them in the future.”
