Konecranes to supply Turkish terminal with two mobile harbour cranes
The Turkish terminal operator Çelebi Bandirma Uluslararasi Limani Isletmeciligi has ordered two eco-efficient generation 6 Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbour cranes (MHC) for its terminal at the Port of Bandirma.
The order, which was booked in November 2021, is expected to be delivered to the Turkish terminal in July 2022.
The two new Konecranes Gottwald ESP.7 MHC, with a working radius of up to 51 metres and a lifting capacity of 125 tonnes, will serve the port’s expansion plans, helping the port to improve their management of containers, general cargo and increase their bulk handling.
"These two new cranes will increase our productivity, lower our total operating costs and take us to a higher level of eco-efficiency at Çelebi Port of Bandırma," claimed Can Çelebioğlu, chairman of Çelebi Holding.
Both cranes are equipped with a fuel-optimised diesel engine and an external power supply, and when they are connected to the harbour mains, their overall efficiency will be very high, with no local exhaust emissions and less noise, according to a Konecranes statement.
