Konecranes has won an order from the Netherlands for a Konecranes Gottwald Model 6 Mobile Harbor Crane, scheduled to be commissioned in the summer.


European Bulk Services B.V. (EBS) purchased the four-rope grab crane to support its steadily growing bulk handling business in the long term. In Rotterdam, the diesel-electric crane will handle a range of dry bulk materials. It will be prepared to use power from the port’s grid in the future, for even more eco-efficient operation. This will reduce the crane’s energy consumption and eliminate exhaust emissions locally.


Jan de Wit, Managing Director, EBS, explains: “We have significantly expanded and modernized our storage infrastructure to strengthen our position as a leading provider of covered storage for dry bulk products in the Port of Rotterdam. To benefit in the most flexible way from our new sheds with their removable sliding roofs, we have now opted for a Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Crane. This versatile crane will directly load products from the different compartments of our sheds onto sea-going vessels and vice versa.”
