North Italian terminal orders Generation 6 Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Crane

Terminal Del Golfo (TDG), part of Tarros Group, has ordered an eco-efficient Generation 6 Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Crane for its operation in La Spezia, Italy.

The order was booked in July 2022 and the crane will be delivered in the first quarter of 2023.

The crane will be equipped with an external power supply that lowers operating costs while reducing noise and exhaust emissions, said Konecranes.

The new Generation 6 crane is designed to increase capacity and improve flexibility at the terminal. It can handle containers, general cargo and heavy project cargo, and its external power supply will raise both operational performance and reduce local carbon emissions.

When unplugged the crane uses a hybrid drive, consisting of an EU Stage V diesel engine paired with ultracapacitors refilled by lowering and braking energy.

“We are excited to utilise the latest eco-efficient mobile harbour crane technology to support our terminal enlargement project in La Spezia,” said Andrea Natale, Terminal Manager at TDG.

“We were convinced by the combination of productivity, flexibility and eco-efficiency that the Generation 6 offers.”

The crane is TDG’s first Generation 6 mobile harbour crane.

“This order underlines the strengths of the Generation 6 crane, with its high productivity, reliability and eco-efficiency, and we are proud to support TDG in their terminal expansion” added Gino Gherri, Regional Sales Manager, Port Solutions, Konecranes.

Konecranes said this order is part of its Ecolifting strategy, which aims to decrease the carbon footprints of its customers.

Earlier this month, Spinelli S.r.l. (Spinelli Group) announced it will add the first Generation 6 crane to its fleet of Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Cranes at its terminal in Genoa, Italy.
