Terminal San Giorgio (TSG) has ordered a sixth-generation Konecranes Gottwald ESP 8 mobile harbour crane for its terminal in Genoa, Italy.


TSG is equipped to handle all kinds of freight including containers, breakbulk, project cargo, yachts, steel, and ro-ro. Konecranes said that it will be the first of its Generation 6 cranes to go to Italy and will be delivered in June 2022. 

The crane has a working radius of 54 m and a lifting capacity of 150 tonnes. The diesel-powered  crane is in line with EU Stage V emission standards and Italy’s National Industry 4.0 Plan. The crane also has built-in readiness for an external power supply, so conversion to electric operation will be possible when resources allow.

“We already operate two Generation 5 Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbour cranes in Genoa, and they have always performed above and beyond our expectations, so we are proud to be the first customer in Italy to order a new Generation 6. With its improved performance and additional features, we cannot wait to see how it handles containers and project cargo at our terminal,” said Maurizio Anselmo, managing director of TSG.
