Konecranes receives order from Malta Freeport Terminals

Marsaxlokk, Malta (PortSEurope) July 1, 2018 – Malta Freeport Terminals has ordered 15 RTGs from Konecranes to be delivered before early 2019. The cranes, which include features such as auto-steering, stack collision reporting, and auto-TOS reporting, will stack one-over-six containers high, and six rows plus truck lane wide. Antti Halonen, sales manager EMEA at Konecranes Port Solutions, said, “Malta Freeport has been an important customer
for Konecranes since 2005. We are happy to be a part of the story of its growth and success. The new RTGs will help Malta Freeport to provide its shipping line customers with greater container handling capacity and reliability”. Malta Freeport is a major transhipment port in the Mediterranean region with container handling and industrial storage services. It focuses on the ‘hub’ concept, whereby cargo is discharged from large mother vessels and relayed to a network of regional ports by regular and frequent feeder vessels. Around 96% of Malta Freeport’s container traffic is transhipment business. Source: Hoist Copyright (C) PortSEurope. All Rights Reserved. 2018.
