Brindisi, Italy (PortSEurope) May 27, 2020 – Finnish lifting solutions provider Konecranes has received in the first quarter of 2020 an order from SIR – SpA Servizi Industriali to deliver an eco-efficient Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Crane to Italy’s Port of Brindisi. Delivery is expected in May and the commissioning will take place in June. The crane will mostly handle bulk cargo but will also be used for general
and project cargo. The crane is a Model 5 in the G HMK 5506 variant that has a motor grab. It has a working radius of 51 metres, which offers the reach up to 17th container row (for ships up to post-Panamax class) and the maximum load carried is increased to 125 tonnes. Additional features of the crane include ‘hoisting height assistant and land-side lowering’ that make the operator’s job safer and easier. It also has a built-in readiness for an external power supply, which alleviates the conversion to operation using the harbour mains. SIR owner and Managing Director Antonio Roma said: “We have been very pleased with our first Konecranes purchase. With its maximum lifting capacity of 80 tonnes (maximum radius 40 metre, reaches up to 11th container row), it offered us high flexibility in bulk materials and general cargo handling. But now we need to increase capacity”. In 2018, SIR purchased Konecranes Gottwald Model 2 mobile harbour crane when the port business expanded. Industry-related environmental services provider Servizi Industriali (SIR) was founded in 2005 and expanded later to include port services at the Port of Brindisi, which is one of the major commercial harbours on the Adriatic Sea. The port of Brindisi is managed by Autorita’ di Sistema Portuale del Mare Adriatico Meridionale (AdSP – Southern Adriatic Sea Port Authority). Copyright (C) PortSEurope. All Rights Reserved. 2020.
