Konecranes will deliver an eco-efficient Konecranes Gottwald Model 6 Mobile Harbor Crane to Flinders Logistics at Port Adelaide, Australia.

Konecranes will deliver an eco-efficient Konecranes Gottwald Model 6 Mobile Harbor Crane to Flinders Logistics at Port Adelaide, Australia.

In March, Flinders Port Holdings placed an order for the crane, which is expected to be delivered by August.

The new crane will boost the capacity of bulk materials and cargo handling services.

Flinders Logistics is based in Adelaide, which is the main maritime gateway and capital of South Australia.

Flinders Logistics has been using the 100t Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Cranes since 2011 to load bulk cargo vessels.

To keep up with the growth of the business and the quality, Flinders placed an order for an additional eco-efficient Model 6 Crane.

Flinders Port Holdings inventory specialist Shane Haywood said: “As the purchasing officer, I have had the pleasure of working with Konecranes since the Flinders Group bought their very first harbour crane in 2011.

“The team at Konecranes has always been supportive and responsive to our needs and provides additional services like annual maintenance inspections. We look forward to the arrival of our third machine and to developing our relationship further.”

The new Konecranes Gottwald Model 6 Mobile Harbor Crane will be in the G HMK 6407 two-rope variant.

The crane will have a maximum working radius of 51m and a lifting capacity of 100t. The crane can be used for vessels up to post-Panamax and Capesize Bulker classes.

The crane will be used to load mineral concentrate. The crane is also equipped with smart features that help to avoid the accidental discharge of the bulk material.

It is compatible with an external power supply, which decreases environmental impact and helps maintain ISO 14001 environmental management certification.

Konecranes Port Solutions regional director sales APAC Michael Green said: “For close to a decade, we have enjoyed an excellent relationship with Flinders and we are delighted to see them grow and choose Konecranes for their new Mobile Harbor Crane purchase.

“It is great to see the trust placed in our products and we are excited to be able to provide high-quality equipment and help Flinders lift their business down under.”
