Heavy – part of the Gosselin Group – has taken delivery of a Konecranes Gottwald Model 5 mobile harbour crane at its terminal on the Albert Canal, Belgium.
The 125-ton (113.4-tonne) capacity mobile crane has a 51 m radius and will be deployed primarily for the handling of containers and breakbulk cargo, supplementing the company’s existing crane.
Marc Smet, ceo of Gosselin Group, said: “The widening of the Albert Canal and the expansion of our quay wall have had a positive impact on our activities.
“We want to apply inland navigation and multimodal solutions as often as possible to ease the pressure on local and other roads and to offer certainty to our clients. After all, the number of containers being processed continues to rise.”
Heavy is a member of the Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC).
