Brindisi orders second Konecranes MHC

Brindisi orders second Konecranes MHC

(Posted on 06/05/20)

In the first quarter of 2020, SIR S.p.A. Servizi Industriali (SIR) ordered another eco-efficient Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbour Crane for their operations at the Port of Brindisi in south-eastern Italy. With delivery in May and commissioning in June, the crane will be handling mostly bulk but also general and project cargo.  

Founded in 2005, SIR is a leading provider of industry-related environmental services. A decade later, they expanded their operations to include port services at the Port of Brindisi, one of the most important commercial harbours on the Adriatic Sea. Since then, their port business has rapidly expanded, and only two years ago they bought a Konecranes Gottwald Model 2 mobile harbour crane.

“We’ve been very pleased with our first Konecranes purchase,” says Antonio Roma, Managing Director and owner of SIR. “With its maximum lifting capacity of 80 t it offers us already high flexibility in bulk materials and general cargo handling. But now we need to increase capacity. We decided on Konecranes again because we were looking for a high-performance crane that would allow us to handle much larger volumes of bulk, as well as more general and heavier project cargo when required.”

Their second Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbour Crane will be a Model 5 in the G HMK 5506 variant with a motor grab. Its working radius of up to 51 meters gives the reach needed for ships up to post-Panamax class and raises the maximum load they can handle up to

125 t. Smart crane features, including a hoisting height assistant and land-side lowering, make the job of the operator easier and safer. The crane will have built-in readiness for an external power supply, so conversion to operation via the harbour mains will be easy when resources allow. Web reporting provides relevant crane data to increase both performance and serviceability. It also fulfils the criteria set out in Italy’s National Industry 4.0 Plan, a state strategy that encourages industrial innovation.

“We are proud of this repeat order,” says Gino Gherri, Regional Sales Manager for Konecranes Port Solutions. “It demonstrates the strength of our partnership with SIR and highlights the value of cultivating long-term business relationships to help customers build their success with Konecranes.”
