Yilport orders four Model 8s from Konecranes Gottwald

Puerto Quetzal will receive its new Gottwald Model 8 mobile harbour cranes in mid-2019, with Puerto Olivar’s arriving two months later. The cranes are 2-rope cranes and will mainly handle containers.

 

The cranes provide lifting capacities of up to 100t under hook and an outreach of up to 61m, enabling them to handle containers across 19 rows alongside large vessels.

 

Robert Yüksel Yildirim, Chairman and Owner of Yilport Holding, said: “Our aim is to become a leading player in selected countries in Latin America, which forms a key pillar in our global growth strategy.

 

"To provide customers with the best handling services at these logistic turnstiles and to meet the challenges of serving ever-larger container vessels, we have opted once again for high-performance Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbor cranes from our most valued and dependable partner.

 

"We have been impressed time and again with the high handling rates and reliability of the cranes from Konecranes and attach great importance to eco-efficiency that these machines provide as part of our overall strategy.”

 

Andreas Moeller, Senior Sales Manager of Konecranes’ Business Unit Mobile Harbor Cranes, said: "We are proud that our long-term customer Yilport has chosen our cranes once again for their handling services outside Europe.

 

The fact that Yilport ordered four large Model 8 cranes for their terminals in Latin America shows how customers can grow with our technology and broad offering according to their changing needs.”
