Kingston Wharves (KWL), a terminal operator at the Port of Kingston, Jamaica, has ordered a Konecranes Gottwald Model 8 Mobile Harbor Crane to increase its capacity and efficiency in container handling and to serve super-post-Panamax vessels. The order marks KWL's return as a Konecranes customer and will allow the operator to expand its current container handling capacity and to serve larger vessels. Handover is scheduled for the beginning of December 2021. "Regional trade is expanding, so this order is part of a comprehensive strategic upgrade to our equipment and facilities," says Mark F. Williams, CEO of KWL. "Our new Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbour crane will provide us with the performance, reliability and robustness we've come to expect from such a crane, while giving us the extra capacity and options we need for our future growth and development." "KWL has been operating four Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbour cranes for many years," says Andreas Moeller, senior sales manager for Konecranes Mobile Harbor Cranes. "The fact that they are returning to us again demonstrates the confidence they have in our relationship and that our cranes are ideal for both their productivity and future growth needs. Our partnership is a model of long-term cooperation and success." The new crane is a Konecranes Gottwald Model 8 Mobile Harbor Crane in the G HMK 8510 variant. With a maximum radius of 61 m, it can service container vessels up to super-post-Panamax class. Smart crane features combined with a maximum lifting capacity of 125 T make it flexible enough to handle general and heavy project cargo as well. The crane will be delivered along with a complete set of spare parts so that maintenance tasks are quick and minimise downtime.
In ports, forest products damage risk is increased due to the handling speed and need to quickly clear the harbor dock. For paper roll damage free handling Bolzoni Auramo recommends the CTX intelligent clamps featuring a fully automatic clamp force control system.
MHEDA and MHI are proud to present the 9th Annual Emerging Leaders Conference on Wednesday, August 11th, 2021.
