Konecranes awarded order for three large mobile harbor cranes from Ras Al Khaimah, UAE
Pubblicato da Redazione Redazione
In the fourth quarter of 2018, Saqr Port, part of the RAK PORTS GROUP, ordered three Model 8 mobile harbor cranes. Two Konecranes Gottwald cranes will be delivered in April 2019, a third one to follow in July 2019.
Situated in Ras Al Khaimah, Saqr Port is the major bulk terminal in the Middle East and an essential pillar of the Emirate’s economy. The two new eco-efficient diesel-electric cranes, additions to the existing fleet of eleven Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbor cranes, will handle inbound and outbound bulk material including coal, limestone and clinker.
David Owen, Port Engineering Manager, Saqr Port: “Ras Al Khaimah is one of the most rapidly growing Emirates. Our port not only plays a key role in the long-term strategy of our Emirate, but also as a logistic backbone of the entire Arabian Peninsula. To fulfill this dual role, we have operated mobile harbor cranes from Konecranes for many years which have proven themselves to be very efficient. The new Model 8 cranes form both the next step in our partnership with Konecranes and our terminal’s performance. These large cranes will help us to sustainably boost productivity in Saqr Port.”
Dirk Stoll, Regional Sales Director of Konecranes’ Business Unit Mobile Harbor Cranes: "The United Arab Emirates are situated in the center of an extremely dynamic world region. Reliable handling of bulk materials is thus crucial. We are proud that this important customer continues to trust in our technology for its bulk operations. Saqr Port’s decision once again in favor of Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbor crane technology confirms that our large cranes perfectly meet the needs of terminal operators who are faced with the challenges of rapid growth.”
The three Model 8 mobile harbor cranes for Saqr Port are four-rope G HMK 8410 B cranes with a powerful 63-t grab curve in combination with the highest operating speed on the market, resulting in the highest handling rates. For particularly eco-efficient use, the cranes will be prepared to be hooked up to the terminal’s grid.
