Malta-based engineering company Motherwell Bridge Industries has won contracts for crane assembly and specialist team deployment at major container terminals for Finnish lifting specialist Konecranes in Scotland, Germany, Belgium, South Korea and the US.
The contracts have been awarded for the assembly and commissioning of one rubber-tyred gantry crane in Blackford in Scotland and five in Chicago.
Motherwell Bridge Industries will also supply specialist technicians to assemble straddle carrier cranes in Bremerhaven in Germany, Zeebrugge in Belgium, and in Busan and Hyundai in South Korea.
These projects are expected to be completed by the year’s end.
“Motherwell Bridge Industries has worked hard to build a track record for excellence over the years and we have consistently succeeded in completing projects on time and on budget wherever we have operated around the world,” says managing director Tony Mallia. “These latest contracts awarded by Konecranes are testament to our teams’ work ethic and professionalism.”
Motherwell Bridge Industries has been a preferred sub-contractor for Konecranes since 2005 and has assembled more than 350 cranes at key ports across all continents.
