The G HSK 3432 model will be delivered later this year. The unit has been designed to fit on the terminal’s existing rails on the quay and will have a maximum lifting capacity of 100 tons (90.7 tonnes), and a lifting radius of 46 m.

Uddevalla has opted for the crane to be equipped with an external power supply, which will make use of existing local grid electricity. This, according to Konecranes, results in less noise, no local exhaust, and reduced operational costs.

According to Ulf Stenberg, managing director of Uddevalla Hamnterminal, the terminal needed additional lifting equipment for project cargo and container handling as a result the expanding business in the region.
