Konecranes has secured another order for diesel-electric Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Cranes from its long-term customer SEA-invest.

SEA-invest will add three Model 6 machines to its existing fleet of 36 cranes in Belgium and France.

“Together with our dedicated terminals in France, our recent acquisition of Independent Maritime Terminal in Antwerp will form the backbone of our growing container and reefer handling business,” said Philippe Van de Vyvere, managing director, SEA-invest.

“As we operate Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Cranes in many of our 25 European and African locations, it is simply logical that we now opt for the same technology with regard to this relatively recent container activity and as a sustainable extension of our bulk activities in Belgium and France.”

The order includes two Model 6 four-rope grab cranes for bulk handling with a maximum capacity of 100 tonnes with a maximum outreach 51m for SEA-invest’s terminals in Ghent, Belgium and Rouen, France, as well as one Model 6 two-rope crane for Antwerp, Belgium.

With the Rouen and Ghent cranes, SEA-invest intends to further strengthen its position in the global bulk handling market. The Antwerp crane will help the customer to accelerate its growing container handling activities.

“Worldwide, our cranes are in high demand. We are proud that our technology has convinced SEA-invest once again, one of our most loyal customers,” said Giuseppe Di Lisa, sales and marketing director, Mobile Harbor Cranes, Konecranes.
