The order was placed last month and delivery is slated for H1 2018. The cranes will have a SWL of 66t, outeach of 61m and lift height above rail of 46m.

"Even before the new cranes arrive, Savannah has more cranes on its nearly two-mile long dock than any other single terminal in North America," said GPA Executive Director Curtis Foltz.

Savannah is among Konecranes' most important customers worldwide, for STS cranes and RTGs.

The engineering is carried out in Finland, and the key components are from Europe. The heavy structures for the STS cranes are manufactured in China.

"Our relationship with the GPA goes back to 1990, when we delivered our first STS crane to Savannah," said Tuomas Saastamoinen, Sales & Marketing Director, Konecranes, Port Cranes. “With each container crane delivery over the years, we have made improvements, fine-tuning our technology in cooperation with the GPA, to improve efficiency and reliability constantly. The STS cranes on order now are the latest products of this process.”

Separately, another long-standing customers,TCV Stevedoring Company in Valencia, has ordered another four RTGs, for delivery in Q1 2017. The 50t SWL (twin 2) machines are 16-wheelers stack 6 + 1 and 1 over 5.
