Konecranes Noell straddle carriers  for Thessaloniki

Thessaloniki Port Authority SA, a privately listed company, is the concessionaire and operator of the Port of Thessaloniki, Greece. This order is part of an ambitious growth programme that the port has embarked upon.

“We entrusted Konecranes with this important renewal of our container handling equipment because of the high productivity and reliability of these straddle carriers,” Sotirios Theofanis, Chairman of the Board and CEO of the Thessaloniki Port Authority SA, is quoted.

The straddle carriers on order are of the model NSC 644 E. They have a lifting capacity of 50 tons, lifting containers 1-over-3, with a maximum traveling speed of 24 km/hr. They will be equipped with the Konecranes Noell single-lift spreader model NES 42 F.

All Konecranes Noell straddle carriers are prepared for subsequent automation as standard. The contract includes a spare part package. In addition, a Konecranes engineer will be on stand-by at the terminal for three months, helping to train operators and ensuring that all the machines go into service successfully.
