Konecranes delivers in Vietnam

Konecranes delivers in Vietnam

(Posted on 17/04/20)

At the end of 2019, Saigon Port JSC ordered another eco-efficient Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbour Crane for their operations at Tan Thuan Port in southern Vietnam. The crane will expand capacity at the port by handling all types of cargo.  

Located in the Vietnamese metropolis Ho Chi Minh City, with a history dating back to 1860, Saigon Port has long been a key transport and commercial hub, providing essential import, export and economic services for the entire southern region of the country. As port facilities rapidly developed in the 1990s and into the 2000s, Saigon Port ordered several mobile harbour cranes and forklifts from Konecranes, all of which have proven their durability and low cost of ownership throughout their entire service life. With an increase in business, Saigon Port took the step to provide their terminal Tan Thuan with a new, eco efficient and highly versatile Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbour crane which can handle containers, bulk and break bulk – in other words, whatever comes through the harbour.

“Konecranes equipment is very reliable,” says Mr Huynh Kim Tay, Deputy Technical Manager of Saigon Port. “It always meets the demanding heavy workload we face in the port 24 hours a day,

365 days a year. We decided on Konecranes again because we

wanted a compact, high-performance crane that would give us a lot

of flexibility while fulfilling the technical requirements of the port.

And this crane does exactly that.”

Saigon Port’s new Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbour Crane will

be a Model 3 in the G HMK 3405 variant. With a working radius of 46m and a maximum lifting capacity of 100t, the crane handles containers and general cargo. Equipped with a motor grab it handles bulk materials as well. Web reporting provides relevant usage data to improve both performance and serviceability. The crane will have built-in readiness for an external power supply, so connection to the harbor mains will be easy when resources allow. The crane also fulfils the criteria set out in Vietnam’s Maritime Code and Environment Law, with strict rules for reducing noise and emissions.

“It’s been rewarding to see Saigon Port develop over many years, with ever higher productivity and constantly increasing cargo handling rates,” says Mike Green, Regional Director Sales APAC for Konecranes Port Solutions. “We wish Saigon Port great success and look forward to continuing our long and loyal partnership well into the future.”
