Noatum Terminal Castellon, part of Spanish port operator Noatum Maritime, has added another Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Crane to its fleet. The Model 6 machine was put into operation in May in Castellon, where it handles mainly bulk but also a number of other cargo types.
 
The new 125 t diesel-electric machine will contribute to the further growth of the terminal, situated some 80 km north of Valencia. Joaquin Ramon Lestau, CEO, Noatum Terminal Castellon, said: “With this Model 6 crane, we aim to extend and optimize our bulk activities. As we also offer all kinds of cargo handling services in our terminal in Castellon, the machine will allow us to load and unload all kinds of commodities including project cargo and containers. Given this variety of tasks, it was logical to opt for the particularly versatile mobile harbor crane technology from Konecranes. Moreover, since Noatum already operates seven Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Cranes of different sizes and generations in other port terminals, this new investment proves, beyond any doubt, how we value the reliability of the machines from Konecranes."
