Konecranes secures Goliath order

St. Nazaire, France-based shipyard Chantiers de l’Atlantique has ordered a Konecranes Goliath gantry crane.

The unit will be used to handle large ship blocks and panels.

The onsite erection work will be completed in cooperation between the shipyard and Konecranes. The crane is scheduled to enter into service in spring 2022.

Bertrand Paquet, vice president purchasing at Chantiers de l’Atlantique, said: “This order placed with Konecranes is part of an ambitious investment plan of Chantiers de l’Atlantique. With a height of 10 m higher than the other gantry crane of the yard, the new Goliath crane will allow us to lift and install all of the superstructure parts of the large vessels we will build in the coming years.”
