Saqr Port boosts MHC fleet

Industry Database

Saqr Port, part of the RAK Ports group, has placed an order for three of Konecranes Gottwald’s Model 8 mobile harbour cranes.

Located in the UAE’s Ras Al Khaimah emirate, Saqr Port is a major bulk terminal that already operates a fleet of eleven Konecranes Gottwald MHCs.

The three Model 8 mobile harbour cranes for Saqr Port are four-rope G HMK 8410 B cranes with a powerful 63-t grab curve and, according to Konecranes, have the highest operating speed on the market.

For particularly eco-efficient use, the cranes will be prepared to be hooked up to the terminal’s grid.

Two of the cranes will be delivered in April 2019, with a third one to follow in July 2019.
