Konecranes secures Busan’s new order

The HDC Hyundai Development Company of Korea has ordered a fleet of 28 Konecranes Noell Sprinter Carriers for Busan New Port 2-4 in Busan, Korea.

The Sprinter Carriers on order, which will be delivered as part of the port’s expansion project 2-4, are man-driven, diesel-electric machines stacking containers 1-over-1 as part of swift container transfer between the quayside and container yard.

The order was booked in August 2020 and will be delivered in three batches starting at the end of 2021 and ending by July 2022.

All of the machines will be equipped with Stage IV diesel engines, and they will all have eight wheels by special customer request to reduce ground pressure. The standard Konecranes Noell Sprinter Carrier has six wheels.

“The HDC Hyundai Development Company is a renowned developer of container terminals and we are proud to have received this repeat order as Busan New Port continues to expand,” said Peter Kania, head of sales for straddle carriers, Konecranes Port Cranes.

When the Sprinter Carriers on order are delivered and working, Busan New Port will have a  Sprinter Carrier fleet of 64 machines.

All of these carriers will have built-in readiness for automation and this puts Busan New Port on Kone­cranes’ path to port automation, where container terminals improve productivity and safety in manageable steps.
