Finland’s Konecranes has assembled, tested and handed over eight hybrid Noell Straddle Carriers at Copenhagen Malmö Port (CMP).

The straddle carriers, which were delivered to CMP late last year, and the entire container terminal will be relocated to Ydre Nordhavn next year.

By and Havn, one of CMP’s owners, is the developer of the container terminal, while CMP is responsible for the equipment and for operating the terminal. 

The new terminal will play a crucial role in regional development, supplying the growing Copenhagen capital area and the rest of Zealand with goods and commodities and catering to the export needs of businesses in the region.

“The new straddle carriers represent a significant step toward CMP’s goal to achieve climate neutrality in our operations by 2025,” says Povl Dolleris Røjkjær Ungar, chief operating officer of Copenhagen Malmö Port.

“These machines run on fossil-free HVO 100 biodiesel instead of fossil diesel and utilise modern hybrid electric technology, consuming significantly less fuel than previous equipment.” 

In the beginning of 2025 Konecranes will also deliver two electric Ship-to-Shore cranes to CMP for the new terminal.

Meanwhile in the United States, SeaPort Manatee has ordered two Konecranes Gottwald ESP.7 Mobile Harbor Cranes, which are to be delivered by the end of the year.

SeaPort Manatee, the closest US deepwater seaport to the expanded Panama Canal, is investing in new equipment to manage anticipated strong growth in container and general cargo traffic.

With four Konecranes mobile harbor cranes already on site, the port ordered two more that will offer the ability to run both with electricity from the harbor main, meaning a significant reduction in emissions and a higher efficiency.
