Logistec Stevedoring has ordered an eco-efficient Konecranes Gottwald Model 7 mobile harbour crane for its operations at the port of Montreal in Canada.

The Konecranes Gottwald Model 7 crane in the G HMK 7608 B variant offers a lifting capacity up to 150 tonnes. With a maximum radius of 54 m, it can service bulk vessels up to Capesize class, and its smart crane features make it versatile enough to handle almost any kind of dry bulk cargo, according to Konecranes.

The crane is also equipped with external power supply to use power from the harbour for an eco-efficient operation. For working independently from this power source, the crane uses its on-board diesel engine, which fulfils the latest emission standard EPA Tier 4f, Konecranes said.

Rodney Corrigan, president of Logistec Stevedoring Inc, said: “Our mission is to enable reliable and sustainable supply chains that’s why we chose an electric drive solution for its combination of flexibility and eco-efficiency.”

The crane is expected to be delivered in October.
