Steveco deploys new Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Crane

Steveco Oy, a Finnish stevedoring company, has started operating its new Generation 6 Konecranes Gottwald ESP.8 Mobile Harbor Crane at its RoRo terminal in HaminaKotka, southern Finland.

Konecranes noted that the crane is a versatile, high-performance solution that primarily handles containers but can also handle general and heavy project freight.

Jukka Muuri, Foreman, Technical Staff, Steveco, said: “With an ever-increasing volume of annual throughput at our Hietanen terminal, we require the latest equipment to support it. The new Generation 6 Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Crane has already made a noticeable difference to our RoRo capacity.

“Its geometry and ergonomics help our drivers and its productivity impresses our customers. This crane is exactly what we need moving forward.”

Hans-Jürgen Schneider, Regional Sales Manager, Port Solutions, Konecranes, stated: “Our partnership with Steveco is strong, as they have had Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Cranes on-site for many years. We are pleased to support Steveco’s growth with new crane, which is growing in popularity in northern Europe given its high performance and reliability.”

The Generation 6 Konecranes Gottwald ESP.8 Mobile Harbor Crane is said to have a working radius of up to 54 metres and a maximum capacity of 125 tonnes, making it suitable for serving containerships up to Panamax class.

According to Konecranes, the ESP.8 is well-suited to RoRo vessels with high ship sides, as its high boom pivot point aids in reaching the containers on top, and its raised tower cab provides a superb view of the working area.

The crane is reportedly powered by a hybrid drive system that combines an EU Stage V diesel engine with ultracapacitors to give extra power for big lifts. The gathering of lowering and braking energy also replenishes the ultracaps.

Recently, Konecranes was awarded a contract to upgrade the reactor hall overhead crane at Sweden’s Oskarshamn Nuclear Power Plant.
