Konecranes for Middle East port

2. January 2019 | Comments (0)

Saqr Port in the United Arab Emirates - part of the RAK Ports group - has ordered three 63 tonne Konecranes Gottwald G HMK 8410 B mobile harbour cranes.

The diesel electric Model 8 cranes have been ordered in the four rope variant, featuring hoist speeds of up to 140 metres a minute. Two of the cranes will be delivered in April, with the third in July. They will handle inbound and outbound bulk material at the port in Ras Al Khaimah, northern UAE including coal, limestone and clinker.

Port engineering manager David Owen said: “Ras Al Khaimah is one of the most rapidly growing Emirates. Our port not only plays a key role in the long term strategy of our Emirate, but also as a logistic backbone of the entire Arabian Peninsula. To fulfil this dual role, we have operated mobile harbour cranes from Konecranes for many years which have proven themselves to be very efficient. The new Model 8 cranes form both the next step in our partnership with Konecranes and our terminal’s performance. These large cranes will help us to sustainably boost productivity in Saqr Port.”

Konecranes regional sales director mobile harbour cranes Dirk Stoll added: "The United Arab Emirates are situated in the centre of an extremely dynamic world region. Reliable handling of bulk materials is thus crucial. We are proud that this important customer continues to trust in our technology for its bulk operations. Saqr Port’s decision once again in favour of Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbour crane technology confirms that our large cranes perfectly meet the needs of terminal operators who are faced with the challenges of rapid growth.”
