The Finnish Port of Oulu has ordered a Konecranes Gottwald ESP.7 portal harbour crane to improve cargo handling capability at its main quay.

The new Generation 6 machine, which will be delivered in the second quarter of 2025, allows operators to reach across special roll-on/roll-off (RoRo) vessels that have containers stacked high on deck.

The crane will also increase flexibility to handle general cargo as well as heavy project cargo up to 125 T.

“This new portal harbour crane will expand our container handling capacity, adding essential flexibility to handle also other kind of cargo,” says Marko Mykkänen, Port of Oulu’s managing director.

“Slewing gives it the extra range of motion to access every container on the RoRo vessels, including those in hard-to-reach corners. 

“In addition, its electric drive will reduce our energy consumption, which aligns to our state environmental permit.” 

Hans-Jürgen Schneider, Konecranes’ regional sales manager of port solutions, says the crane will be installed on existing rails, minimising downtime for the port.
