Kuenz provides RMG barge cranes to Port of Limburg

Kuenz has delivered two new RMG barge cranes to Port of Limburg, the operator of Genk’s fresh new inland container terminal.

Kuenz is scheduled to deliver this order by Q1 2025. By this time, the company will have nine intermodal cranes operating in Belgium, without considering the ASC.

Benjamin Hermans, CEO of Port of Limburg, said: “Port of Limburg has chosen Kuenz because of their high-performance equipment and ability to offer the technical solution we needed.

“Also, the professional approach during the project management trajectory has definitely contributed to our choice for Kuenz. We are fully confident that our partnership will succeed and look forward to seeing our new cranes in action soon.”

According to reports, the new terminal would have a maximum capacity of 350,000 TEU.

Vincent Pelletier, Area Sales Manager at Kuenz, said: “We are delighted to set up a successful partnership with Port of Limburg at Genk terminal. With these investments, Port of Limburg materialises the political will to develop the combined transport and reduce CO2 emissions.”

A customised crane solution will be installed at the soon-to-be-completed Port of Limburg terminal in Genk.

In June 2022, Kuenz was selected by DFDS Belgium to deliver one brand new rail mounted gantry crane (RMG) for its intermodal terminal in Ghent, Belgium.

More recently, Kuenz and systems integrator ABB secured an order for 20 automated sideloaded stacking cranes for the new T3 terminal at Baltic Hub in Gdańsk, Poland.
