“We’ve been operating Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbour cranes for more than 20 years,” said Stéphanie Feys, managing director of Zuidnatie NV.


“We trust both the high overall performance of the cranes and the eco-efficiency of their diesel-electric drive. After discussing our needs with Konecranes, we’ve decided to move closer to fully electric operation for both environmental and economic reasons.”


For bulk and breakbulk handling at Quay 480, Zuidnatie chose a Model 7 mobile harbour crane G HMK 7508 B in the four-rope variant, with a powerful 63t grab curve in A7 and a maximum capacity of 125t (pictured). Set up for an external power supply, electric conversion will be a straightforward process when resources allow.


For empty container handling and heavy loads up to 100t in their operations area at Quay 624, Zuidnatie opted for a Konecranes Gottwald Model 3 mobile harbour crane G HMK 3405 in the two-rope variant. The crane is equipped with an external power supply to be connected to the harbour mains, reducing local exhaust and noise emissions in the terminal.


“Konecranes’ electric drives give lower operational costs over the crane’s lifecycle and can deliver even higher efficiency with an external power supply, making them an excellent investment for our customers,” said Alexandros Stogianidis, director sales Benelux for Konecranes Port Solutions.


“This project underlines the value of our long-term partnerships with our customers, and shows the growing momentum behind our eco-efficient portfolio of products.”
