Logistec Montreal increases eco-efficiency with Konecranes Gottwald MHC

Logistec Montreal increases eco-efficiency with Konecranes Gottwald MHC

(Posted on 12/08/21)

LOGISTEC Stevedoring Inc, a dry bulk terminal operator at the Port of Montreal, Canada, has ordered an eco-efficient Konecranes Gottwald Model 7 Mobile Harbour Crane to improve their technology and eco-efficiency in material handling. The order was booked in June 2021. The crane will be delivered in October and used to handle dry bulk cargo such as scrap metal.

A major port on the eastern seaboard of the North American continent, the Port of Montreal services Toronto and central Canada, as well as the Midwest and Northeast of the United States, with almost half of its import traffic coming from Europe. Such a port needs high-performance cranes to ensure it can always manage a 24/7 continuous flow of freight. The time had come to add new equipment to the existing fleet of mobile harbor cranes at the LOGISTEC terminal. They ordered a Konecranes Gottwald Model 7 crane, which will bring a new level of eco-efficiency to their dry bulk handling equipment. Commissioning and handover are scheduled for October 2021.

“We’re always ready to go beyond and looking ahead, so we want quality equipment that’s going to support our continuous growth,” said Rodney Corrigan, President of LOGISTEC Stevedoring Inc. “Our mission is to enable reliable and sustainable supply chains that’s why we chose an electric drive solution for its combination of flexibility and eco-efficiency. Konecranes gives us high performance, strength and durability, while offering opportunities for future growth and development.”

“Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbour Cranes are familiar to LOGISTEC. They have already been operating a Model 5 at the Port of Corner Brook in Newfoundland and two Model 6 units at Port Manatee in Florida,” says Alan Garcia, Sales Manager, Port Solutions, Region Americas for Konecranes. “The fact that LOGISTEC chose us again for their Montreal operations, demonstrates the confidence they have in our equipment and that our cranes are ideal for a range of applications and future growth needs. Our partnership is built on long-term cooperation, common values and mutual goals.”

The new crane is a Konecranes Gottwald Model 7 Mobile Harbour Crane in the G HMK 7608 B variant. With a maximum radius of 54 m, it can service bulk vessels up to Capesize class. Smart crane features combined with a maximum lifting capacity of 150 t make it versatile enough to handle almost any kind of dry bulk cargo. The crane is equipped with external power supply to use power from the harbour main for an eco-efficient operation. For working independently from this power source, the Model 7 uses its on-board diesel engine which fulfils the latest emission standard EPA Tier 4f.

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.
