Long-term customer SEA-Invest will add three Model 6 machines to its existing fleet of 36 cranes. Konecranes said that, thanks to its continuous production concept, all three cranes will be put into operation this year.

The order includes two Model 6 four-rope grab cranes for bulk handling (max. capacity 100t, max. outreach 51m) for SEA-Invest’s terminals in Ghent (Belgium) and Rouen (France), as well as one Model 6 two-rope crane (125t, 51m) for Antwerp (Belgium).

With the Rouen and Ghent cranes, SEA-Invest intends to further strengthen its position in the global bulk handling market. The Antwerp crane will help the operator accelerate its growing container handling activities.

Philippe Van de Vyvere, managing director of SEA-Invest, said: “Together with our dedicated terminals in France, our recent acquisition of Independent Maritime Terminal in Antwerp will form the backbone of our growing container and reefer handling business.

“As we operate Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbour cranes in many of our 25 European and African locations, it is simply logical that we now opt for the same technology with regard to this relatively recent container activity and as a sustainable extension of our bulk activities in Belgium and France.”

Giuseppe Di Lisa, Konecranes’ sales and marketing director, Mobile Harbour Cranes is pleased that many terminal operators around the globe are impressed by the qualities of Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbour cranes. “Worldwide, our cranes are in high demand,” he said. “We are proud that our technology has convinced SEA-Invest once again, one of our most loyal customers.”
