SEA-invest, one of the world’s largest terminal operators for dry bulk, fruit and liquid bulk, will strengthen its position by adding three Model 6 machines to its existing fleet of 36 cranes.
All three cranes will be put into operation this year, with a crane deployed in Antwerp to support the company’s growing container handling activities.
The order includes two Model 6 four-rope grab cranes for bulk handling for SEA-invest’s terminals in Ghent, Belgium, and Rouen, France, as well as one Model 6 two-rope crane for Antwerp, Belgium.
Philippe Van de Vyvere, Managing Director, SEA-invest, said: “Together with our dedicated terminals in France, our recent acquisition of Independent Maritime Terminal in Antwerp will form the backbone of our growing container and reefer handling business.
“As we operate Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Cranes in many of our 25 European and African locations, it is simply logical that we now opt for the same technology with regard to this relatively recent container activity and as a sustainable extension of our bulk activities in Belgium and France.”
