Konecranes wins repeat Turkish order

Konecranes wins repeat Turkish order

(Posted on 14/01/19)

In the third quarter of 2018, AtakaÅŸ Liman Ä°ÅŸletmeciliÄŸi Ve Tic. A.Åž. (AtakaÅŸ Port Business) ordered a Model 7 portal harbor crane, making it the third Konecranes Gottwald crane purchased within the past year. The recent contract includes an option for another crane at a later date.

The rail-mounted portal harbor crane for Turkey's newest port operator, AtakaÅŸ Port Business, a subsidiary of AtakaÅŸ Corporate Group, follows two rubber-tired Konecranes Gottwald Model 7 mobile harbor cranes put into operation a year ago. Starting mid-2019, the latest crane will go to work in Iskenderun on Turkey’s southeastern coast, mainly handling bulk and later serving large container vessels.

Vedat Ohri, General Manager of AtakaÅŸ Port: “Our aim is to provide the greatest benefits to the Mediterranean, Central Anatolia and Southeastern Anatolia regions. To meet our goals, we have chosen reliable and high-performance Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbor crane technology once again. We started our operations with two flexible rubber-tired cranes to handle various types of cargo, but now need rail-mounted cranes for continuous-duty bulk handling. To enable the new crane to work on our rails, Konecranes will team its mobile harbor crane technology with a portal exactly designed to our needs. We are also preparing to load and unload large container vessels with up to 18 rows at a later date.”

Hans-Juergen Schneider, Regional Sales Manager of Konecranes’ Business Unit Mobile Harbor Cranes: "We are proud that this ambitious new Turkish port operator selected our technology right from the outset and continues to opt for it, having come to appreciate its assets."

The Model 7 portal harbor crane for AtakaÅŸ is a four-rope G HSK 7528 B crane. It provides lifting capacities of up to 125 t, a powerful 50-t grab curve for mechanical grab operation and an outreach of up to 54 m. The crane’s individually designed portal has a clearance of 6 m, the track gauge measuring 14 m. To compensate for the different rail loadings due to the crane offset in relation to its portal, the bogies on the quay side are fitted with eight wheels each and on the land side with six.

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. In 2017, Group sales totaled EUR 3,136 million. The Group has over 16,000 employees at 600 locations in 50 countries. Konecranes shares are listed on the Nasdaq Helsinki.
