The giant rubber-tyred hydraulic crane has been supplied by Belgian crane rental company Goeyvaerts, a key customer for Finland-based Mantsinen
A new Mantsinen 300M mobile harbour crane arrived last week at the Euroports Terminal on the left bank in Antwerp. The new rubber-tyred materials handler will be used to handle barges and coasters carrying a wide variety of cargo commodities, such as containers, steel coils, wood pulp, and so on.
The crane is rented from port equipment hire company Goeyvaerts R, which is supplied by Mantsinen through its Belgian service and distribution partner, Heavy Handling.
The crane has a maximum lifting capacity of 80 tons and incorporates Mantsinen’s latest HybriLift 2 energy recovery system. This particular 300M can also be operated fully-electrically, with an extended travel range thanks to a very long electric cable.
Robby Van Bunder, CTO of Euroports said: "We can use the crane to serve two general cargo vessels and lighters at the quay side. Containers can also be handled with the new equipment."
