Goeyvaerts adds a 15th Gottwald mobile harbour crane
Konecranes has won another order from Goeyvaerts, a Belgian rental crane expert. It will be Goeyvaerts' 15th Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbour crane and the largest crane in its fleet.

Goeyvaerts will add the diesel-electric crane to its large fleet of rental cranes. Goeyvaerts' many customers in the Port of Antwerp will use it to handle mainly containers and heavy cargo.

CEO Rudi Goeyvaerts explains: "We started our rental crane business in 2006. Due to the growing need for container twin-lifting and heavy cargo handling, our customers increasingly require larger cranes. The new Konecranes Gottwald Model 7 crane will provide a higher lifting capacity and a wider outreach than our existing machines and will therefore be an excellent addition to our current fleet of 14 Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbour cranes. It will help our customers to expand their service offering further."

Alexandros Stogianidis, regional sales manager, Konecranes Port Solutions, says the cranes can be used for a wide variety of applications and are easy to move around the port, "which is, of course, a key advantage when they are operated as rental cranes as in the case of Goeyvaerts".

Goeyvaerts' new crane will be an eco-efficient Model 7 mobile harbour crane in the G HMK 7608 variant, providing a maximum lifting capacity of 150 T and an outreach of up to 54 m.
