Copenhagen Malmö Port receives straddle carriers from Konecranes

Konecranes officially delivered eight hybrid Konecranes Noell Straddle Carriers to Copenhagen Malmö Port (CMP). Ordered in the second quarter of 2023, these straddle carriers are designated for the new container terminal in Copenhagen.

The parts were delivered to CMP in the fourth quarter of last year and have since been assembled and rigorously tested at the current container terminal.

Next year, the existing container terminal will be relocated a few kilometers to a new, improved site in Ydre Nordhavn. By & Havn, one of CMP’s owners is developing the terminal, while CMP is responsible for equipping and operating it.

The new terminal will be vital for regional development, supporting the growing Copenhagen capital area and the rest of Zealand with goods and commodities, and meeting the export needs of local businesses.

CMP requires high performance and sustainability from its equipment in this busy port. Having reduced fossil CO2 emissions by 68% since 2020, CMP is on track to achieve fossil-free container goods handling, with support from Konecranes in this effort.

“The new straddle carriers represent a significant step toward CMP’s goal to achieve climate neutrality in our operations by 2025. These machines run on fossil-free HVO* 100 biodiesel instead of fossil diesel and utilize modern hybrid electric technology, consuming significantly less fuel than previous equipment. With these new machines, efficiency and productivity will improve, meeting our customers’ demands. We are delighted that Konecranes has fulfilled the mission and delivered the straddle carriers promptly, allowing us to use them already today,” stated Povl Dolleris Røjkjær Ungar, COO of Copenhagen Malmö Port.

The new straddle carriers can lift containers 1-over-3, compared to the current ones at the existing terminal, which lift 1-over-2. This allows for more efficient storage, enabling a greater number of containers to be stored in the same space.

“CMP has set the bar very high in terms of energy consumption and emissions. Konecranes was able to meet and in some respects even exceed their requirements with these straddle carriers. We are grateful for CMP’s trust in our technology and performance and look forward to building on our good relationship as we move forward," added Hubert Foltys, head of the Konecranes Straddle Carrier business.

At the start of 2025, Konecranes is scheduled to deliver two electric Ship-to-Shore cranes to CMP for use at the new terminal.
