Weserport welcomes Gottwald crane

Bremen-based terminal operator Weserport, part of the Rhenus Group, has replaced its gantry slewing crane with a Konecranes Gottwald model 6 mobile harbour crane.

The mobile harbour crane arrived at Weserport’s Terminal 1 earlier this year and has been used to handle breakbulk cargo and project loads. The gantry slewing crane has now been dismantled.

At 125 tonnes, the load-bearing capacity of the Konecranes Gottwald crane is more than double that of the crane it has replaced, says Weserport. “As a result, we can now handle individual heavy-duty items with our own equipment,” explains Heiner Delicat, managing director of Weserport.

The mobile harbour crane is mainly handling steel and breakbulk cargo at Weserport, but it is also likely be used to handle heavy project cargo modules and containers in future.
