Konecranes strengthens its bulk handling presence in Japan with a Model 4 mobile harbor crane
MPL has been operating a smaller Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Crane since 2006. This crane has been handling different types of cargo, including bulk, with a motor grab. MiikeТs new mobile harbor crane will replace an ageing bulk gantry crane. Makoto Aso, President, CS, explains: УBulk handling technology from Konecranes has proven to be very productive and reliable at many terminals around the world. MPL has been very impressed by the performance of their Konecranes cargo handling equipment to date. It was logical to opt for a Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Crane in order to further expand their bulk handling activities.Ф
Holger Schauer, Regional Sales Manager, Konecranes Port Solutions, says: УWe are pleased that the fleet of Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Cranes at Japanese terminals is growing. Since 2003, we have delivered one Model 2 and nine HMK 170 E mobile harbor cranes, the predecessor of Model 2, to nine terminals around the country. The new crane will be the first Model 4 mobile harbor crane to be operated in Japan.Ф
The four-rope grab crane has a maximum lifting capacity of 95 tons, an outreach of up to 46 m and a high-performance grab curve. To meet the special requirements in Japan, Konecranes will deliver the crane with an additional overload indicator.
