Antwerp receives largest hydraulic crane

The largest hydraulic crane in the world dedicated to dock work recently arrived in the port of Antwerp.

With a lifting capacity of 50t and a reach of 40m, the Mantsinen 300 crane is 30m tall and weighs nearly 500t.

The delivery to Antwerp represents an investment of €2M by the Vijfde Havendok company, as part of the further development of its terminal facilities.

Launched earlier this year, the Mantsinen 300 pushes the faster and more precise hydraulic jib/stick crane concept even further into the size class of traditional rope cranes. Its “positive digging” capabilities will enable “the fastest work cycle on the market and the best productivity in its size class.”

The 300 is designed to meet the requirements of moving bulk cargo on Panamax class ships, but it can also handle heavy general cargo and containers.

A next generation or “mark 2” HybriLift energy recovery system has been developed and patented for the Mantsinen 300. The system is said to improve energy efficiency further than ever before, even in large cranes.

The Mantsinen 300 is available with either a diesel engine or an electric motor. The undercarriage can be chosen and optimised according to the client’s needs. The options include undercarriages with tracks, rubber tyres, rails or a fixed platform. Mantsinen designs and manufactures its own attachments, which it said are optimised for all kinds of uses and for any machine type.

The delivery to Antwerp is one of the first two Mantsinen 300s off the production line, the other being delivered to a customer in Ghent. Both handlers will move different kinds of bulk materials on Panamax class ships.
