Mantsinen 120M Hybrilift for ABP Newport

The new machine, a Mantsinen 120M materials handler, utilises the latest technology and is fitted with a HybriLift energy storage system that will decrease energy consumption by 35%, says ABP.

 

ABP’s Port of Newport handles a wide mix of cargo for its customers, including steel, forest products, and bulk materials for the agricultural sector. It is Wales’ leading general cargo port and the second largest conventional steel port in the UK.

 

The Mantsinen 120M is described as "a perfect handling solution for Newport as it can easily be fitted with different attachments to safely handle these commodities."

 

Andrew Harston, Regional Director, ABP Wales & Short Sea Ports, said: “The Port of Newport plays a major role in supporting international trade. Our operations support a diverse range of customers and commodities and we are constantly evolving to accommodate dynamic market trends.

 

"The purchase of this adaptable and energy efficient crane will help us enhance the services we provide to our current and future port customers.

 

The crane was purchased through Cooper Specialised Handling, exclusive UK distributor of Mantsinen hydraulic cranes. The new crane is in addition to five Mantsinen cranes purchased by various ABP ports in 2016 through Cooper’s.
