Flinders takes 3rd Gottwald
Australian port operator Flinders Port Holdings has ordered a third Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbour crane for its subsidiary Flinders Logistics at Port Adelaide.
The two rope variant G HMK 6407 has a maximum capacity of 100 tonnes and a maximum radius of 51 metres. It can serve container vessels up to post-Panamax and Capresize Bulker and features a rotating spreader attachment used for handling special low profile bulk containers designed for handling mineral concentrate.
Shane Haywood, Flinders inventory specialist, said: “As the purchasing officer, I have had the pleasure of working with Konecranes since the Flinders bought its 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.”
