Konecranes Gottwald Floating Cranes to be delivered to Guinea
(Posted on 24/05/18)
Konecranes has won another order for two Konecranes Gottwald Floating Cranes. The order was placed by Winning Logistics Company Limited in the first quarter of 2018. With these new cranes, Winning has ordered eight such cranes in a short time.
The new order follows an order placed with Konecranes only last fall. The floating cranes contribute to the continuing growth of Winning’s bauxite handling activities off the coast of Guinea, Africa. They play a key role in the supply chain, transshipping bauxite from river barges to cape size vessels on the open sea.
Wang Chuanyang, Vice President, Winning Logistics explains: “Our existing cranes have proven themselves to be particularly productive and reliable in the very rough open-sea environment. This is why we have opted time and again for floating cranes from Konecranes.”
Giuseppe Di Lisa, Sales and Marketing Director, Mobile Harbor Cranes, Konecranes Port Solutions, says: “Konecranes Gottwald Floating Cranes are derived from our mobile harbor crane technology and highlight our pioneering role in this field. The first floating cranes went into operation on the Mississippi River in 2004. Thereafter, they quickly found their way to the open sea. Winning’s decision to continue to rely on Konecranes Gottwald Floating Cranes confirms Konecranes’ leading role in this segment.”
Built for use on the open sea, the Model 8 floating cranes with a maximum outreach of 43 m and a powerful 63 t grab curve are designed in accordance with Lloyd’s Register Code for Lifting Appliances in a Marine Environment. This allows them to operate at wind speeds of up to 24 m/s and at maximum wave heights of 2.5 m.
