Terminal San Giorgio takes Gottwald

Konecranes is set to deliver a Gottwald Model 7 mobile harbour crane to Italy's Terminal San Giorgio (TSG).

The crane, which will be commissioned in June 2018 in Genoa, will handle containers, general and project cargo at the multipurpose terminal. It is designed to use power from the port's grid in the future, reducing energy consumption and eliminating exhaust emissions.

The crane will be the terminal's second Model 7, with the first commencing operation in 2013.

Maurizio Anselmo, managing director, TSG, said the high level of performance and reliability obtained from the first crane, plus the availability of a local Konecranes service team, lay behind the decision to invest in a second Gottwald Model 7 adding that "the two cranes will help us to fully exploit the potential of our terminal, which is the premier multipurpose terminal in the port of Genoa."

The Model 7 two-rope crane, a G HMK 7608 variant, provides a strong lifting curve with a maximum lifting capacity of 150 tonnes, and an outreach of up to 54 m.
