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.”
