Terex Port Solutions (TPS) has secured an order for a model six mobile harbour crane in the G HMK 6507 two-rope variant from Swedish dry bulk goods manufacturer Svenska Cellulosa Aktiebolaget (SCA) Logistics AB.
The mobile harbour crane is to be used within the terminal in Sundsvall, approximately 400 kilometres to the north of the Swedish capital, Stockholm.
The mobile harbour crane is expected to help SCA Logistics AB in the Port of Sundsvall to meet the constantly increasing demand in the container segment.
The crane offers SCA a maximum lifting capacity of 113 t[MO1] onnes, a radius of up to 51 metres and achieves lifting speeds of 120 metres-per-minute.
Urban Häggkvist, Terminal Manager at SCA, said: “We expect particularly high growth rates in the container business.
“That is why we have also moved the container activities to the Korstabäcks quay of the SCA terminal, where it is possible to moor much larger container vessels than before.
“In order to be equipped for growth, we are relying on high-performance Terex Gottwald mobile harbour crane technology.
“The new crane is an investment in the future for us and part of a comprehensive integrated concept, with which we plan to become faster, more productive and more flexible at our terminal in Sundsvall.”
Hans-Juergen Schneider, Regional Sales Manager at TPS, said: “We are delighted that our range in all its variety has also impressed terminal operators in the Baltic region.
“The market here is very demanding, and customer requirements are correspondingly diverse. It is therefore no coincidence that we have recently been successful in the region with many models from our medium-sized and large crane family.
“The fact that both existing and new customers are choosing our proven technology is also undoubtedly a success of our customer-oriented innovation strategy, which results in a diverse product range.
Schneider concluded: “A range that has of late also impressed terminal operators in other parts of northern Europe, such as Norway and Iceland.”
