Busan New Container Terminal (BCNT), which operates a fleet of 36 Konecranes Noell Sprinter Carriers, is ordering six more to support its growing business.
The Sprinter Carriers will transport containers between the quayside and the container yard. Five of the units on order were booked in June and one in September of 2021. The order will be delivered by June 2022.
The Konecranes Noell Sprinter Carriers on order will be the first Stage V compliant container handling machines in the port of Busan. They will be equipped with eco-efficient, diesel-electric drives, fulfilling the EU Stage V emission standard, which will help BNCT meet its low-carbon operating targets.
“We received our first Konecranes Noell Sprinter Carriers in 2012 and have come to appreciate their reliability, efficiency, and strong local service support. We look forward to receiving the new ones,” said Mynung-gil Jeon, GM, BNCT.
The six Konecranes Noell Sprinter Carriers on order are of the type NSC 424 E, lifting containers 1-over-1 high. They are highly versatile, maneuverable, speedy machines that keep containers flowing between the quayside and the container yard.
