Eldorado Brasil has added seven Konecranes forklifts and two gantry cranes to its cellulose terminal at the Port of Santos, Latin America’s largest port.

Eldorado Brasil’s new terminal at the port is designed to process 3,000,000 T of pulp bales annually, or close to 8,300 T daily by rail and truck. 

Around 90% of the pulp is exported to 45 countries globally. 

“(Konecranes) helped us design the terminal and provided equipment with all the special adaptations we require for cellulose handling,” says Leandro Nogueira, Logistics Operations Manager, Eldorado Brazil.

“After just a few months, we’re already impressed with the productivity, safety and eco-efficiency.” 

The seven Konecranes SMV 16-1200 C 16 T forklifts use a special clamp designed to lift pulp bales without pallets.

The two Konecranes gantry cranes are tailor-made with a customised open winch, a spreader clamp for pulp bales and the option to attach a container spreader when needed.

Konecranes is also providing Eldorado Brasil with Truconnect Remote Monitoring, which collects near real-time diagnostics to optimise the performance, maintenance and eco-efficiency of all the equipment. 

“Eldorado came to us after using a Konecranes indoor overhead crane at another pulp mill for over a decade,” says Leandro Belotto Bosco, Senior Account Executive, Industrial Cranes, Konecranes. “With this terminal, we offered them a complete pulp handling solution.”
