Konecranes Gen 6 crane for Norway

Norwegian based logistics company Tyrholm & Farstad has taken delivery of Konecranes’ Gottwald Generation 6’ mobile harbour crane.

The crane will be based on the Flatholmen terminal in Ålesund on the west coast of Norway handling cargo for the Møre og Romsdal region.

The ESP.6 crane, launched in 2021, has a capacity of 125 tonnes up to a radius of 49 metres, with stronger load charts allowing it to work with larger vessels and work at higher handling rates. The crane has been prepared for an external electric power supply, eliminating emissions and reducing noise. When unplugged it uses an onboard Stage V diesel generator set.

Tyrholm & Farstad chief executive Jan Arve Hoseth said: “Our new terminal is an important investment for the future, so we need efficient and sustainable equipment to support it. Konecranes could provide a future proof mobile harbour crane that combines the best available lifting technology with an electric drive concept and excellent backup support from their local partner.”

Founded in 1968, Tyrholm & Farstad is the oldest logistics company in its region and currently operates with a team of 40.
