Eurogate has ordered 17 Konecranes Noell straddle carriers for its Container Terminal Hamburg operation; 13 reach stackers have been delivered to dry ports in Ethiopia
The latest order for 17 straddle carriers, again sealed earlier this year, but only now disclosed, follows the delivery of 43 Konecranes Noell straddle carriers to Eurogate Hamburg (CTH) and Eurogate link company MSC Gate Bremerhaven during 2018. Deliveries of the 17 machines for CTH will begin this July.
Today Eurogate and Eurogate-link terminals in Bremerhaven, Wilhelmshaven and Hamburg operate around 250 Noell straddle carriers.
Konecranes has revealed that it delivered 13 45 ton SWL reach stackers to Ethiopian Shipping and Logistics Services Enterprise (ESLSE) in the first two months of this year – ten were delivered to the main dry port at Modjo and one each to the smaller inland terminals of Kaliti, Mekelle and Kombolcha.
Every reach stacker in the order features a smart MD4 display and multifunctional joystick, along with an ergonomic design for the comfort of the driver.
