Konecranes said the new 125t diesel-electric machine will contribute to the further growth of the terminal, situated some 80 km north of Valencia.
The Model 6 crane is a Konecranes Gottwald MHC belonging to the large crane family. The G HMK 6507 B four-rope variant for Noatum offers a maximum lifting capacity of 125t, a 50t grab curve and a maximum outreach of 51m.
Joaquin Ramon Lestau, CEO of Noatum Terminal Castellon, said: “With this Model 6 crane, we aim to extend and optimise our bulk activities. As we also offer all kinds of cargo handling services in our terminal in Castellon, and the machine will allow us to load and unload all kinds of commodities including project cargo and containers.
“Given this variety of tasks, it was logical to opt for the particularly versatile mobile harbour crane technology from Konecranes. Moreover, since Noatum already operates seven Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbour cranes of different sizes and generations in other port terminals, this new investment proves, beyond any doubt, how we value the reliability of the machines from Konecranes.”
Giuseppe Di Lisa, sales and marketing director, Mobile Harbour Cranes, Konecranes, commented: “For more than 15 years, Noatum has regularly ordered Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbour cranes. We are proud that a long-term customer and leader in its market continues to rely on our technology. The fact that the machine will handle a wide range of cargo types, confirms once again one of the key benefits of our mobile harbour cranes, which is their high degree of versatility.”
