Konecranes Gottwald for Uddevalla

In January Uddevalla Hamn Terminal AB reported that it would be ordering a rail-mounted quay crane, although no further information was available.

 

Konecranes has now reported that the crane will be an electrically-powered, 2-rope Model 3 Konecranes Gottwald crane in the G HSK 3432 variant. It will be delivered this autumn 2019 and commissioned in December.

 

Ulf Stenberg, Managing Director of Uddevalla Hamn, said the port realised it hat they needed additional lifting equipment for project cargo and container handling.

 

“We had a Gottwald mobile harbor crane installed in 1986,” says Stenberg. “Its longevity is impressive – it still works well, though of course, we’ve kept up maintenance. We like this crane a lot, but it can only lift 40 tons and we wanted a more powerful crane to help us manage the growing demands for cargo handling in our terminal.”

The new crane is designed to meet the port’s specific quay infrastructure with existing rails. It increases cargo handling performance up to a maximum lifting capacity of 100 tons and a radius of 46 meters.

 

“This is very exciting for us and our local distributor, Port-Trade ApS Denmark,” saidHans-Juergen Schneider, Regional Sales Manager for Konecranes’ Business Unit Mobile Harbor Cranes. “It’s the first Konecranes Gottwald portal harbor crane in Sweden and the market is now wide open for this type of crane.”
