17 Konecranes Units for EUROGATE Hamburg
Konecranes’ relationship with the EUROGATE Group continues with the signing of an order for 17 Konecranes Noell Straddle Carriers for EUROGATE Container Terminal Hamburg.
This follows upon the delivery in 2018 of 43 Konecranes Noell Straddle Carrier to EUROGATE Container Terminal Hamburg and Bremerhaven and MSC Gate Bremerhaven.
Konecranes’ relationship with the EUROGATE Group extends back to the beginning of containerization 50 years ago. Today, around 250 Konecranes Noell Straddle Carriers are operated by EUROGATE terminals in Northern Germany, and the fleet is growing. Early in 2019, Konecranes received and booked an order from EUROGATE Hamburg for 17 more Konecranes Noell Straddle Carriers. Delivery will start in July of 2019.
The straddle carriers on order are model NSC 644 E machines with a lifting capacity of 50 tons. They lift containers 1-over-3, with a maximum traveling speed of 24 km/hr. They will be equipped with Konecranes Noell twin-lift spreader NTS 62 F.
