Konecranes to enhance Antwerp and Terneuzen

Two new cranes are scheduled to be delivered to Benelux ports in the course of this year boosting throughput at the facilities, following the orders made for the cranes, at the end of 2019, by Goeyvaerts-R bvba (Goeyvaerts).

The two eco-efficient Konecranes will be delivered to the Port of Terneuzen, The Netherlands, in the spring and the Port of Antwerp, Belgium, in mid-2020.

The two new cranes will be Konecranes Gottwald Model 7 Mobile Harbor Cranes in the 4-rope variant G HMK 7608 B. They are multi-purpose cranes that can lift up to 150 tons, and they will be used by Goeyvaerts’ customers to handle bulk materials and containers as well as general and project cargo.

Commissioning will be completed in Terneuzen in June of this year, and in Antwerp in September. The cranes will have built-in readiness for an external power supply, so conversion to electric operation will be easy when resources allow.
