One more maxi crane from Gottwald for Lorenzini
The manufacturer will deliver to the Leghorn-based terminal operator (an MSC partner) the Mediterranean region’s largest ever mobile harbor crane
Lorenzini & C. S.r.l. of Leghorn placed an order for a Konecranes Gottwald Model 8 crane, to be delivered fully-erected and then commissioned on-site in January 2019 for handling containers; the diesel-electric mobile harbor crane will be ready for hook-up to the terminal's grid for even greater eco-efficiency in future.
“We are already operating 6 high-performance mobile harbor cranes from Konecranes and have opted for the giant Model 8 crane that meets the challenges presented by the new vessel sizes and types used by our partner Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC). Having the largest mobile harbor crane in the Mediterranean region is symbolic of how we are keeping one step ahead”
Enio Lorenzini, President of Lorenzini & C., stated.
“With this large Model 8 crane, Lorenzini can handle containers across 22 rows and a very high on-deck stack height. This new Model 8 crane variant is gaining a foothold in Europe” Giuseppe Di Lisa, Sales and Marketing Director of Konecranes' Business Unit Mobile Harbor Cranes, stated.
