Konecranes forklift trucks delivered in Dubai

DP World ordered six forklift trucks from Konecranes in November 2017. In June 2018 the machines were delivered to DP World Jebel Ali Terminal 1 in Dubai, UAE.

The forklift trucks delivered in June are the model Konecranes SMV16-1200C. They have a lifting capacity of 16 metric tons at 1200 millimetres and a wheelbase of 3750 millimetres. To meet DP Worlds safety requirements the machines are equipped with overload protection system, disabled forklift operation when seatbelt is disengaged and Groeneveld Greensight reverse system. Greensight reverse system is an obstacle detection system combining reverse camera with ultrasound sensors for enhanced safety.

DP World is a long-time Konecranes customer with a fleet of Konecranes forklift trucks, empty container handlers, reach stackers and RTGs. DP World has 65 marine terminals across six continents with Jebel Ali Port, voted as the best seaport in the middle east, as their flagship facility.

“Since we have very demanding operations we need machines with high productivity and minimum downtime. Due to the quality and reliability of the machines together with excellent aftersales support we choose Konecranes” says Yahya Al Suwaidi, Manager Plant Workshop T1, DP World UAE Region.
