Konecranes has received an order for two ship-to-shore (STS) cranes from Cornelder de Moçambique (CdM). The cranes will be equipped with Konecranes' remote management system and delivered to Port of Beira, Mozambique, in 2013.

The cranes will operate in the port's container terminal, one of the most modern in southern Africa. The order's value is confidential.

CdM is a joint venture formed in 1998 by Rotterdam-based Cornelder Holding and Mozambique Ports & Railways Company. CdM manages the multipurpose container and general cargo terminals at the Port of Beira and is investing in infrastructure and machinery to cope with expected regional growth.

"Adding two Konecranes STS cranes will increase the terminal capacity to 500,000 TEUs and this will ensure CdM and the Port of Beira continue to be the main gateway to [and] from the world for DRC, Malawi, Mozambique, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Botswana for many years to come," says Carlos Mesquita, executive managing director of CdM.

The STS cranes have an outreach of 40 m (131 ft.) and a lifting capacity of 65 T under spreader. The cranes are designed to handle twin lift operations. They will be delivered fully erected to the terminal.
