Zuidnatie has ordered a Konecranes hybrid crane to boost capacity and lower emissions.

The new crane, scheduled to be handed over by the end of October, will be Zuidnatie’s first Generation 6 Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbour Crane and will be used for operations on Terminal Zuid (Quay 118).

Zuidnatie managing director Stéphanie Feys says: “We have been using Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbour Cranes in logistics for over 25 years. As their mobile harbour cranes are also assembled at our site for delivery to other Konecranes customers, we have had the chance to see the new crane up close and gain deeper insight into its technology. This convinced us that the Generation 6 would be the right solution for our own operations.”

The order is for one  Gottwald ESP.6, with a working radius of up to 49 m and a maximum capacity of 125 T to serve container ships up to Panamax class. It will be used to handle containers and general cargo.

The new crane will use a Konecranes hybrid drive, which consists of a modern diesel engine paired with an ultracapacitor that can be recharged by energy recovered from lowering and braking motions.

Konecranes Port Solutions Benelux regional sales director Alexandros Stogianidis says: “This new crane will be the 13th Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbour Crane for Zuidnatie. The order underlines the strength of our long and special business partnership and confirms Zuidnatie’s confidence in Konecranes.”
