Bedeschi ships STS cranes to Cyprus

The two ship-to-shore container cranes built by Bedeschi, based in Limena (Padova), in association with its affiliate since 2016 OMG MGM, for Eurogate Cyprus, have been shipped erect from the assembly site in Chioggia, near Venice, to Limassol on a towed barge

With a weight of 1,800 tonnes and an overall height to the top of the frame of 98m, or 141m with the boom in the raised position, the cranes have an outreach of 68.5m, sufficient for a 23-wide deck stow in Limassol


Crane components were built in Italy by Bedeschi or sub-contractors in the Veneto province and the cranes were assembled in the Chioggia shipyard operated by Bedeschi. All mechanical components were built by Bedeschi at its 70,000 m2 plant in Limena.


The work commence in January 2018 and has been completed in eight months. It has taken 15,000 man hours of mechanical assemblies and 7,000 man hours of electrical assemblies.


As previously reported in WorldCargo News, this is Bedeschi’s first STS container crane project since it acquired Pernumia, Padova-based OMG-MGM from the receiver in 2016. As also previously reported, the companies are working on a second project from Eurogate Cyprus to revamp and extend the outreach (to 18-wide) of two STS cranes in Limassol dating from 1996.


Bedeschi has further reinforced its presence in the bulk handling machinery market by acquiring Italian conveyor belt specialist ONT, based in Bergamo.
