Konecranes has won an order for a diesel-electric crane from Belgian rental crane company Goeyvaerts-R bvba, according to a statement.
The eco-efficient Model 7 mobile harbour crane is the 15th Goeyvaerts has ordered from Konecranes and will be the largest in its fleet.
It will have a higher lifting capacity of 150 tonnes and an outreach of up to 54m.
It will be uses predominantly in the Port of Antwerp, where the Goeyvaerts has a number of logistics and container handling clients.
Alexandros Stogianidis, Regional Sales Manager, Konecranes’ Business Area Port Solutions, says: “We are proud that Goeyvaerts continues to rely on our technology in Antwerp and its other locations.
“Our cranes can be used for a wide variety of applications and are easy to move around the port, which is of course a key advantage when they are operated as rental cranes as in the case of Goeyvaerts.”
Rudi Goeyvaerts, CEO, Goeyvaerts, also commented: “We started our rental crane business in 2006. Due to the growing need for container twin-lifting and heavy cargo handling, our customers increasingly require larger cranes.
“The new Konecranes Gottwald Model 7 crane will provide a higher lifting capacity and a wider outreach than our existing machines and will therefore be an excellent addition to our current fleet of fourteen Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbor cranes.
“It will help our customers to expand their service offering further.”
