Italian port enhances its crane fleet

FHP Group has placed an order for an eco-efficient Generation 6 Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Crane for their Multi Service Terminal in the Marghera Port near Venice, Italy.

The order was booked in April 2022 and its delivery will take place in November 2022.

FHP Holding Portuale Group manages logistics platforms in the Italian cities of Carrara, Livorno, Monfalcone and Venice, creating a strategic link between the Adriatic and Tyrrhenian to support the competitiveness of the Italian industry.

The group operates the Multi Service Terminal (MST) in Venice, where the new crane will provide additional capacity for bulk cargo handling operations.

"FHP Group continuously works to decrease its carbon footprint. For this reason, we’re very pleased to have a new Generation 6 on order, that is part of Ecolifting Konecranes, from eco-optimizing diesel drives to hybridization and fully electric fleets," commented Alessandro Becce, CEO of FHP Group.

The new crane has a working radius of 51 metres and a capacity of 125 tons.
