Konecranes has won a repeat order for two floating cranes which will play a key role in helping one Guinea operator handle its increased offshore bulk activity.

The new cranes for Winning Logistics Company will go into operation on Guinea’s coast loading mined bauxite onto oceangoing vessels heading for Asia.

“With the new delivery, our fleet will consist of six Konecranes Gottwald Floating Cranes, helping Winning Logistics to reach its growth objectives,” said Wang Chuanyang, general manager, Winning Logistics.

Giuseppe Di Lisa, sales and marketing director, Mobile Harbor Cranes, Konecranes Port Solutions, added: “We are proud to have received a repeat order from Winning Logistics. This is a clear expression of the customer’s satisfaction with the performance and efficiency of the Konecranes Gottwald Floating Cranes in operation off the coast away from quay infrastructure.”

Crane specs

The two Gottwald Model 8 Floating Cranes are built for the open sea and designed in accordance with the Lloyd’s Register Code for lifting appliances in a marine environment.

They are able to operate at wind speeds up to 24 m/s and maximum wave heights of 2.5m.

These new machines feature 63t grab curves and a maximum lifting capacity of 100t, allowing the customer to lift project cargo including heavy machinery.

Winning Logistics, a member of the Singapore-based Winning International Group, has been operating Konecranes Gottwald Floating Cranes since 2015 when it began its bauxite transshipment activities.
