South Korea’s Intergis orders Konecranes Gottwald Generation 6 Mobile Harbour Crane.

Busan-based logistics company Intergis Co., Ltd has ordered a Konecranes Gottwald ESP.5 Mobile Harbour Crane to bolster its general cargo and bulk handling capacity at the Port of Busan in South Korea amid the anticipated increase in bulk and cargo traffic.

The Generation 6 MHC was ordered in Q2 2024, and is set for delivery in early 2025.

Logistics company Intergis provides services at six commercial harbours across South Korea, including the Port of Busan, the largest port in the country.

“The Port of Busan is fast becoming very important for international trade. With the addition of this new crane, we can handle whatever our market demands.

“Not only that, its electric drive will both reduce our fuel consumption and help the port meet its goal of creating an eco-friendly commercial waterfront. And we really appreciate Konecranes’ continuous local service support,” says Dong Ho Park, CEO, Intergis.

“Intergis approached us asking for equipment delivering smooth, efficient operations with the minimal amount of downtime – and with reduced emissions as well. Konecranes has been a trusted Intergis partner for years, and is pleased to continue this relationship, backed by our long-term service agent Kilwoo,” says Jerry Fann, Sales Director, Port Solutions, Konecranes.

The Konecranes Gottwald ESP.5 has a working radius of up to 46 m and a maximum capacity of 100 t to handle general cargo and bulk with a special motor grab. When connected to the harbour mains by cable reel, the crane eliminates local exhaust emissions and collects lowering and braking energy to be used in electrical components on the crane or fed back into the grid. For unplugged operation, the crane is powered by a fuel-optimized diesel generator set.
