Port in Bahamas books Konecranes Gottwald Generation 6 Mobile Harbor Crane

Nassau Container Port (NCP) has ordered an eco-efficient Generation 6 Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Crane for container handling at their terminal at Arawak Cay, Nassau, Bahamas.

The order was booked in November 2022 and the crane will be delivered in July 2023.

Since throughput has recovered to pre-pandemic levels and NCP expects this upward trend to continue, the port has decided to invest in a new crane to increase capacity and promote electrification.

“Terminal development is a continuous process, and we’re interested in the best available lifting equipment that suits our needs both now and in the future” said Dion Bethel, President/CFO of Arawak Port Development (APD).

“Konecranes was able to offer us an easily adaptable, high-performance hybrid solution that will help us build even more capacity as we ready our port for shore power and greater energy efficiency.

“We also appreciate Konecranes’ digital services, which provide deep insight into the crane’s performance and condition.”

NCP also implemented Konecranes’ TRUCONNECT remote monitoring with the customer web portal yourKONECRANES. 

The crane sends its data via a secure mobile connection to the Konecranes cloud service, accessible through yourKONECRANES, where customers get a full overview of their crane, with information such as the exact location of the crane on the quay, its fuel consumption and handling performance, even if it is offline.

This crane is part of Ecolifting, Konecranes’ offer designed to decrease carbon footprints.
