Goeyvaerts-R ‘s 15th Konecranes Gottwald MHC
(Posted on 04/10/18)
Konecranes has won another order from Goeyvaerts-R bvba (Goeyvaerts), a rental crane expert. The order was placed in the third quarter of 2018 and the crane will be delivered to Antwerp in November 2018. It will be Goeyvaerts’ 15th Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbor crane and the largest crane in their fleet.
Goeyvaerts will add the diesel-electric crane to its large fleet of rental cranes.
Rudi Goeyvaerts, CEO, explains: “We started our rental crane business in 2006. Due to the growing need for container twin-lifting and heavy cargo handling, our customers increasingly require larger cranes. The new Konecranes Gottwald Model 7 crane will provide a higher lifting capacity and a wider outreach than our existing machines and will therefore be an excellent addition to our current fleet of fourteen Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbor cranes. It will help our customers to expand their service offering further.”
Alexandros Stogianidis, Regional Sales Manager, Konecranes’ Business Area Port Solutions, says: “We are proud that Goeyvaerts continues to rely on our technology in Antwerp and its other locations. Our cranes can be used for a wide variety of applications and are easy to move around the port, which is of course a key advantage when they are operated as rental cranes as in the case of Goeyvaerts.”
Goeyvaerts’ new crane will be an eco-efficient Model 7 mobile harbor crane in the G HMK 7608 variant providing a maximum lifting capacity of 150 t and an outreach of up to 54 m.
