Goeyvaerts orders two Konecranes MHCs to meet growing demand

Goeyvaerts orders two Konecranes MHCs to meet growing demand

(Posted on 13/09/21)

Belgium’s Goeyvaerts-R bvba (Goeyvaerts) has ordered two new eco-efficient Generation 6 Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbour Cranes for their growing rental fleet across ports in the Netherlands and Belgium. The order, booked in July, will be handed over in November 2021.

Goeyvaerts, a longtime Konecranes customer, is a family-owned crane rental company whose customers include startups looking to minimize financial risk, companies with temporary harbour crane needs and businesses looking to take on extra cranes for operational flexibility.

“We need more cranes to meet the rental demand. We’ve been with Konecranes a long time and have been very satisfied with our Generation 4 and 5 Mobile Harbour Cranes. We’ve studied the new Generation 6 cranes and its advantages. Indeed, a very smart development, which will raise the benchmark for reliability and service life in the rental market,” says Rudi Goeyvaerts, CEO of Goeyvaerts.

“This order from Goeyvaerts is a great example of our trustful partnership and how our new Generation 6 cranes meet the needs of the market. Goeyvaerts will benefit from our versatile and high-performance machines, while also cutting fuel and maintenance costs and reducing emissions,” says Alexandros Stogianidis, Senior Sales Manager, Mobile Harbour Cranes, for Konecranes Port Solutions.

Both of the cranes are Generation 6, the latest evolution in Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Cranes which set new standards in cargo handling. The first crane is an ESP.6, with a 49 m working radius and 125 t lifting capacity for container and general cargo handling. Its classification for container handling has been increased from A6 to A7, which means this crane has double the usual service life. The second crane is an ESP.8B with a 54 m working radius and a maximum lifting capacity of 150 t for bulk and project cargo handling. As a 4-rope crane, it has a strong lifting capacity curve and high working speeds to achieve high bulk handling rates.

Both cranes are equipped with an innovative hybrid drive combining diesel generators with ultracaps. This gives Goeyvaerts’ rental customers high flexibility in adapting to changing power demands for different applications while optimizing fuel consumption and reducing exhaust emissions. In addition, both machines have a built-in readiness for an external power supply, so conversion to electric operation will be easy when resources allow. Efficient engines and electric options help reduce carbon emissions, and durability lessens waste. Konecranes calls this Ecolifting.

A strong focus on customers and commitment to business growth and continuous improvement make Konecranes a lifting industry leader. This is underpinned by investments in digitalization and technology, plus our work to make material flows more efficient with solutions that decarbonize the economy and advance circularity and safety.
