Konecranes to deliver two ship-to-shore cranes to Mozambique

13.01.2012 – At the end of December 2011, Konecranes received an order for two ship-to-shore (STS) cranes from Cornelder de Moçambique (CdM). The cranes will be equipped with Konecranes’ remote management system and delivered to Port of Beira, Mozambique, in 2013. The cranes ordered will be operating in the port’s container terminal, one of the most modern in southern Africa.

The ordered STS cranes have an outreach of 40m and a lifting capacity of 65t under spreader. The cranes are designed to handle twin lift operation. They will be delivered fully erected to the terminal. The cranes are equipped with remote access technology, enabling remote diagnostics and the related in-depth expertise and maintenance services that are available in the Konecranes TRUCONNECT® offering. Each crane will also be wirelessly connected to the maintenance office, to allow monitoring as well as accurate and fast trouble shooting.

CdM is a joint venture formed in 1998 by Rotterdam-based Cornelder Holding and Mozambique Ports & Railways Company. CdM manages the multipurpose container and general cargo terminals of the Port of Beira and is aggressively investing in both additional infrastructure and machinery to be able to cope with the expected regional growth.

“Adding two Konecranes STS cranes will increase the terminal capacity to 500.000 TEU and this will ensure that Cornelder de Moçambique and the port of Beira will continue to be the main gateway to/from the world for DRC, Malawi, Mozambique, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Botswana for many years to come,” says Mr Carlos Mesquita, Executive Managing Director, Cornelder de Moçambique.

“We are very proud that Cornelder de Mozambique selected us to deliver these two STS cranes,” says Antoine Bosquet, Sales Director, WEMEA, Port Cranes at Konecranes. ”Cornelder de Moçambique is a key partner in the economic development of the Southeast African region and a principal catalyst in promoting this development, Konecranes is delighted to be able to contribute to this development.”
