Konecranes lands order from Mozambique
Finnish crane and lifting equipment maker Konecranes has received an order for six Rubber Tired Gantry (RTG) cranes from DP World Maputo, Mozambique.
DP World Maputo is a significant container-shipping gateway to southern Africa, linking regional production, mining and commercial hubs to the markets of south-east Asia.
The port is almost solely focused on origin and destination throughput, serving as the main shipping terminus for land-locked regions including South Africa’s Gauteng province, Zimbabwe, Swaziland and Botswana.
The 16-wheel RTGs on order have a lifting capacity of 40 tonnes and will be equipped with Auto-steering, Stack Collision Prevention, Truck anti-lifting and a Truck Positioning System. The cranes will also be equipped with remote service TRUCONNECT, providing around the clock access to a global network of support centres.
The cranes are set to be delivered towards the end of next year.
