Konecranes to deliver MHC to Trieste

(Posted on 10/07/20)

In the second quarter of 2020, Piattaforma Logistica Trieste S.r.L. (PLT) ordered an eco-efficient Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Crane for a new terminal in the Port of Trieste in north-eastern Italy. After delivery in September and commissioning in October, the crane will handle general cargo, containers and heavy project cargo.  

PLT is a partnership formed by local companies to build and operate in a public private partnership (PPP) with the Trieste Port Authority, a new marine terminal in the Port of Trieste, at the very north end of the Adriatic Sea. The port has been a key regional transport hub for centuries but has experienced a marked increase in intermodal shipping traffic in recent decades as it provides a gateway to growing trade with central and eastern Europe. The new terminal needs a flexible crane for all types of cargo vessels and PLT feels that Konecranes fulfills their requirements exactly.

“Our partner companies have had very good experience with Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbor cranes at their other terminals,” says Matteo Parisi, a Member of the Board of Francesco Parisi S.p.A., main shareholder in PLT. “Konecranes’ renowned reliability and flexibility, together with their advanced, green technology make it the right choice for a new terminal like ours in Trieste.”

The new crane will be a Konecranes Gottwald Model 5 Mobile Harbor Crane in the G HMK 5506 variant. This order includes two twin-lift spreaders with 60 t capacity for containers, a good example of the high versatility of the crane. Its working radius of up to 51 m gives the reach needed for ships up to post-Panamax class and a maximum lifting capacity of 125 t allows both general cargo and heavy project cargo handling. The crane can also lift bulk materials with a motor grab if necessary. Smart crane features, including a hoisting height assistant, and a landside lowering function, make the job of the operator easier and safer. The cranes will have built-in readiness for an external power supply, so conversion to electric operation will be easy when resources allow. Web-based reporting and a remote desktop provide relevant crane data to increase both performance and serviceability. Local service technicians and operators will receive customized Konecranes training as part of the package.

“An order like this demonstrates the strength of our customer relationships and our cranes,” says Gino Gherri, Regional Sales Manager for Konecranes Port Solutions. “Our versatile Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbor cranes are perfectly suited to beginning operations at new terminals like this one.”

Konecranes is a world-leading group of Lifting Businesses™, serving a broad range of customers, including manufacturing and process industries, shipyards, ports and terminals. Konecranes provides productivity enhancing lifting solutions as well as services for lifting equipment of all makes.
