Konecranes delivers Generation 6 Mobile Harbor Crane in Finland8 September 2022
Oy Adolf Lahti Yxpila Ab (Adolf Lahti) and the stevedoring company Oy M. Rauanheimo Ab (Rauanheimo) are now operating a new, eco-efficient Generation 6 Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Crane at the Port of Röyttä in Tornio, Finland, next to the Swedish border.
The crane, delivered in July, is handling general cargo and containers and is now the largest and most modern crane of the six cranes the companies operate in the port of Tornio.
Adolf Lahti and Rauanheimo are subsidiaries of KWH Logistics, port operator in Finland. KWH offers logistical services from stevedoring, freight forwarding and shipping agency services to international transport, mill and maintenance services. KWH has operations in 16 Finnish ports and 15 inland locations where large quantities of goods are handled. Excellent productivity and a smaller carbon footprint were key in choosing the new crane.
“Crane operators at the ports where we recently took over operations have had excellent experience with the Konecranes Gottwald brand. In the Generation 6, handling performance and reliability are at a whole new level and the eco-efficient electric drive system supports our sustainability efforts,” said Pekka Pöllänen, CEO, Adolf Lahti.
The ESP.6 Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Crane in Tornio has a working radius of 49m and a capacity of 125t. As one of the new Generation 6 mobile harbor cranes, it offers stronger lifting capacity curves to reach larger vessels and higher handling rates.
The crane has been prepared for an external power supply, so it produces zero local exhaust emissions and reduced noise while running more efficiently when connected to the harbor mains. For unplugged operation, it uses an onboard diesel generator set in line with EU Stage V emission standards.
“We are confident that Adolf Lahti has found the right solution for their needs with this Generation 6 mobile harbor crane. It gives them high performance and productivity, and we look forward to building a long-term partnership with them,” said Hans-Juergen Schneider, regional sales manager, Port Solutions, Konecranes.
