The Danish port of Kalundborg has ordered an eco-efficient Konecranes Gottwald Model 7 mobile harbor crane to meet the expected demand for containers and general cargo in its newly developed port in New West. The order, which was booked in the first quarter of 2021, underscores Konecranes’ commitment to helping customers and industries grow and change so they can work more efficiently, sustainably and safely.

The port placed the order to prepare for commissioning in spring 2021. The crane will be operated by APM Terminals in consultation with AP Moller (Maersk), who recently added Kalundborg to its locations. The crane joins an older Konecranes Gottwald Model 6 that is currently on site and will be delivered in May 2021.

“We are preparing our new berths for commissioning and need a newer crane with more capacity and height. Our experience with Konecranes has been excellent and we are pleased that they can get this eco-efficient crane up and running quickly so that operations can start smoothly, ”says Bent Rasmussen, General Manager of Kalundborg Port.

“This crane gives Kalundborg customers the flexibility to handle a wider range of loads, as well as the productivity and reliability needed to meet their deadlines. We look forward to a long-term partnership with the ability to provide more port hoists as the business continues to grow, ”said Hans-Jürgen Schneider, Regional Sales Manager at Konecranes Port Solutions.

A strong focus on customers and a commitment to business growth and continuous improvement make Konecranes a leader in the lifting industry. This is underpinned by investments in digitization and technology as well as our work to increase the efficiency of the material flow with solutions that decarbonize the economy and promote circularity and safety.
