The Port of Kalundborg has placed an order with Konecranes for a Model 7 Gottwald Mobile Harbour Crane to meet demand at its New West Port.
The order for the eco-efficient crane, booked in Q1 2021, will be operated by APM Terminals in an agreement with A. P. Moller (Maersk) which recently added Kalundborg to its locations.
To be delivered in May 2021, the crane will join an older Gottwald Model 6 currently on site and will meet expected container and conventional cargo demand at the newly developed New West Port.
“This crane will give Kalundborg’s clients the flexibility to handle a wider range of loads and the productivity and reliability needed to meet their deadlines,” said Hans-Juergen Schneider, Regional Sales Manager for Konecranes Port Solutions.
“We look forward to a long-term partnership with the opportunity to provide more harbour lifting equipment as business continues to grow.”
Bent Rasmussen, Managing Director of the Port of Kalundborg, added, “We’re preparing our new berths to start operations, and need a newer crane with more capacity and height.
“Our experience with Konecranes has been excellent, and we’re pleased they can provide this eco-efficient crane quickly so operations can start smoothly.”
