New Eco-Efficient Habor Crane for Port of Trieste
PLT is a partnership formed by local companies to build and operate in a public private partnership (PPP) with the Trieste Port Authority, a new marine terminal in the Port of Trieste, at the very north end of the Adriatic Sea. For the marked increase in intermodal shipping traffic in recent decades, a new flexible crane was needed to provide a gateway to the growing trade with central and eastern Europe. The new terminal with the Konecranes Gottwald Model 5 Mobile Harbor Crance is carrying all types of cargo vessels.
The new crane includes two twin-lift spreaders with 60 t capacity for containers. Its working radius of up to 51 m and gives the reach needed for ships up to post-Panamax class. A maximum lifting capacity of 125 t allows both general cargo and heavy project cargo handling. The crane can also lift bulk materials with a motor grab if necessary. Smart crane features, including a hoisting height assistant, and a landside lowering function, make the job of the operator easier and safer. The cranes will have built-in readiness for an external power supply, so conversion to electric operation will be easy when resources allow. Web-based reporting and a remote desktop provide relevant crane data to increase both performance and serviceability. Local service technicians and operators will receive customized Konecranes training as part of the package.
