Vietnamese port operator Saigon Port JSC has ordered a Konecranes Gottwald G HMK 3405 mobile harbour crane for its Tan Thuan Port in Ho Chi Minh city.
The 100 tonne Model 3 G HMK 3405 can take its maximum capacity to a radius of 46 metres and has been specified to operate on the port’s AC electric power supply. The crane will be used to handle containers and general cargo, while a motor grab has also been supplied for handling bulk materials.
Huynh Kim Tay, deputy technical manager of Saigon Port, said: “Konecranes equipment is very reliable. It always meets the demanding heavy workload we face in the port 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We decided on Konecranes again because we wanted a compact, high-performance crane that would give us a lot of flexibility while fulfilling the technical requirements of the port. And this crane does exactly that.”
