Demand soars as customers meet bulk commitments
Sales of Mobile Harbour Cranes (MHC) fitted with four-rope grabs have remained buoyant in 2006, reflecting the success the two leading manufacturers have had in selling the benefits of the flexible MHC terminal concept in preference to cargo-dedicated handling options.
A smaller percentage of Gottwald MHCs have traditionally been supplied with grabs, and this has remained the case this year.Of the 58 orders sold through to the end of August, 15 were fourrope grab cranes. However, spokesman Peter Klein insists a simple analysis of the figures fails to capture Gottwald's success in the bulk market."Nearly all four-rope grab cranes were from the HMK/HSK 330 EG series and were supplied to dedicated bulk terminals such as Immingham's HIT 2 project [rather than multi-purpose terminals], a market segment which Gottwald focuses on,"he says.
