Cameroon terminal operator Régie du Terminal à Conteneurs (RTC) has ordered two Konecranes Gottwald Model 6 mobile harbour cranes for its port in Douala.
The G HMK 6507 variant cranes offer a maximum lifting capacity of 125 tonnes and a maximum radius of 51 metres. Scheduled for delivery in the coming months, the cranes will be able to service container vessels up to post-Panamax as well as increase the port’s cargo handling capacity.
RTC Douala managing director Faustin Dingana, said: “Playing such an important part in the local economy, we need to maintain high-quality services for both Cameroonian and international clients. Our two new Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbour cranes will help us continue to meet increasing customer demand well into the future.”
Andreas Czwalinna, regional sales manager at Konecranes Port Solutions, added: “RTC already operates a fleet of Konecranes lift trucks and mobile harbour cranes, and the fact that they have chosen us again demonstrates how the performance of our cranes helps them reach their productivity and growth objectives.”
