Konecranes wins contract for four eco-efficient cranes

Konecranes to deliver cranes to Goeyvaerts

Konecranes has announced that Goeyvaerts-R bvba (Goeyvaerts) has ordered four eco-efficient Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Cranes for its rental fleet across ports in the Netherlands and Belgium.

The cranes will be delivered from January to October 2021 and have been bought to support the company’s business growth.

Kevin Goeyvaerts, co-owner and COO of Goeyvaerts, said, “These new cranes are the right investment for the growing rental market.

“Konecranes has always provided quality equipment ideal for renting: strong and reliable, eco-efficient and easy to adjust for different customer needs. We’re happy to choose them again.”

One of the four new cranes will be a Konecranes Gottwald Model 6 mobile harbor crane in the GHMK 6507 variant. With a capacity of 125 tonnes and a maximum working radius of 51 metres, it can handle both break bulk and containers.

The other three units will be Konecranes Gottwald Model 7 mobile harbor cranes in the G HMK 7608 B variant, 4-rope grab cranes for continuous-duty bulk handling.

With lifting capacities of up to 150 tonnes and a maximum radius of 54 metres they have the reach for super-post-Panamax container ships and capesize bulkers to handle containers and heavy cargo. All four cranes will have built-in readiness for an external power supply, so conversion to electric operation will be easy when resources allow.

Alexandros Stogianidis, Director Sales Benelux for Konecranes Port Solutions. “Our long-term partnership clearly  commented, “The addition of these four new cranes brings the Goeyvaerts’ Konecranes Gottwald fleet to a total of 24, giving their customers an even wider range of options to handle all kinds of different cargo.”
“Our long-term partnership clearly demonstrates
Goeyvaerts’ trust in us to help their business continue to grow and succeed in the future.”
