Italian terminal operator Spinelli purchases another Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Crane
19 September 2017
Spinelli S.r.l. (Spinelli) has ordered another Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Crane for its terminal in the Port of Genoa.
The Model 7 crane was ordered in August 2017 and will be delivered on site in October. The main role of the machine will be container handling. It is the fifth Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Crane ordered by Spinelli since 2013. Roberto Spinelli, Managing Director of the company, said: “From the beginning, our Konecranes Gottwald cranes have provided us with a particularly high level of performance and reliability. They have also helped us to extend our service portfolio. They allow us to serve an ever-growing number of large vessels and handle general cargo in parallel. The new crane will sustainably boost our handling capacity and strengthen our leading market position. The crane is an excellent investment.”
Gino Gherri, Regional Sales Manager, Konecranes Port Solutions, is pleased with the continuing cooperation with Spinelli: “Spinelli has become one of our most important customers in Italy. Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Cranes are their crane technology of choice. This has much to do with the fact that each of the cranes is equipped with specific features to meet Spinelli’s individual needs. Moreover, the new crane’s very short delivery time of only two months is a key advantage for Spinelli. It also fulfills the criteria of the Italian innovation law ‘Industria 4.0’, making it an even more attractive investment.”
The new crane is a Model 7 Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Crane. It is a two-rope variant offering a maximum lifting capacity of 150 t and an outreach of up to 54 m.
