Super Terminais has ordered three eco-efficient Generation 6 Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbour cranes for its cargo terminal at the port of Manaus in Brazil.
Super Terminais ordered the cranes for installation on its new floating pier, which has been built specially to accommodate a recent influx of larger vessels coming down the Amazon River.
The three cranes are Konecranes Gottwald ESP.10 mobile harbour cranes mounted in a row on pedestals on the floating pier instead of on wheels or tracks.
Equipped with smart crane features and a maximum lifting capacity of 125 tonnes, the cranes are versatile enough to handle both containers and general cargo. Moreover, the crane manufacturer added that the cranes will be connected to an external power supply onshore to increase efficiency and fully comply with regional emission standards.
Marcello Di Gregorio, managing director of Super Terminais, said: “This equipment will significantly expand our capacity and give opportunities for future growth and development.”
