Maher Terminals LLC in the USA has ordered eight more straddle carriers from Konecranes. When delivered in June 2015, Maher will operate a total of 27 Konecranes straddle carriers.

This will be Konecranes' third straddle carrier delivery to Maher Terminals LLC, which operates the largest container terminals in the ports of New York and New Jersey and has a fleet of over 185 straddle carriers. The order's value is confidential.

The Konecranes straddle carriers ordered are identical to those already delivered. They will be equipped with Konecranes' electric drives and power train components "to ensure high durability, reliability and performance while keeping operating and service costs low".

In line with Maher's "green" initiatives, the straddles will be equipped with the latest Tier 4i low-emissions engine technology. They will have a hoisting capacity of 40 T in single container operation and 50 T in twin-twenty operation, lifting 1-over-2 containers high. They will also be equipped with Konecranes' fleet management system.

"This repeat order is a sign of Maher's trust in our straddle carrier technology and our local service support," says Tommi Rautavalta, general manager straddle carriers, Konecranes. "We value our relationship with Maher and we will continue to support them in lifting their business."
