Logistec Florida orders two Konecranes Gottwald Generation 6 MHCs

Logistec Florida orders two Konecranes Gottwald Generation 6 MHCs

(Posted on 08/11/21)

Leading North American terminal operator LOGISTEC USA Inc. (LOGISTEC) has ordered two new eco-efficient Generation 6 Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbour Cranes for their terminal at the Port of Manatee in Tampa Bay, Florida, USA. The order, booked in August, will be handed over by February 2022.

LOGISTEC operates 80 terminals in 54 ports across North America. The company handles all kinds of cargo, and their terminal at the Port of Manatee deals mostly with containers, pallets, steel and break-bulk. In the light of their continued commitment to the port, they are anticipating increasing levels of container traffic.

“With the arrival of our two new electric drive cranes from industry-leader Konecranes, we will be serving our customers in an eco-friendly way. These new additions to our fleet of cargo handling equipment are well aligned with our focus on reducing our marine carbon footprint in support of our Green Marine initiatives. This is great news for our customers, our community and the environment in Port Manatee,” said Rodney Corrigan, President of LOGISTEC USA Inc.

“2021 marks 50 years of Konecranes presence in the Americas, and this order from LOGISTEC is a good illustration of the strength of our long-term partnerships in the region,” says Alan Garcia, Sales Manager, Port Solutions, Region Americas for Konecranes. “The order also shows clearly that our new Generation 6 cranes are living up to their potential in the market, offering high performance and reliability while lowering fuel costs and reducing emissions.”

The two new Generation 6 cranes will be Konecranes Gottwald ESP.7 Mobile Harbor Cranes, with a working radius of up to 51 m and a lifting capacity of 125 t. These cranes are the natural successors of the two Generation 5 cranes already on-site. They feature a higher tower cab for a better view of the vessels in port and stronger lifting capacity curves for improved handling performance and a higher classification, which doubles their service life in container handling operations. Their on-board drive follows the strict EPA Tier 4 final standards. It’s a smart hybrid drive combining a diesel engine with optimized fuel consumption and an ultracap. This allows for both eco-efficient operation and peak performance when necessary.

A strong focus on customers and commitment to business growth and continuous improvement make Konecranes a lifting industry leader. This is underpinned by investments in digitalization and technology, plus our work to make material flows more efficient with solutions that decarbonize the economy and advance circularity and safety.
