Breakthrough for Konecranes Straddle Carriers in American container terminal

19.06.2012 – In May 2012, Konecranes received an order for six straddle carriers from Maher Terminals LLC in the US. This is Konecranes’ first straddle carrier delivery to Maher, one of the world’s largest container terminal operators being used by multiple shipping lines and customers. The straddle carriers will be delivered to Maher’s terminal in the Port of New York/New Jersey in November 2012. The parties have agreed not to disclose the value of the order.

The ordered straddle carriers are equipped with Konecranes electrical drives and power train components, ensuring the highest durability, reliability, and performance, while keeping operating and service costs low. The straddle carriers have a hoisting capacity of 40 tons in single container operations and 50 tons in twin twenty operations lifting one over two containers high.

Maher Terminals LLC has developed the largest marine container terminal in the Port of New York and New Jersey. The highly flexible and efficient container terminal operation is strategically located in the heart of one of the world’s most affluent consumer markets. Maher currently operates a fleet of over 160 straddle carriers.

“We are very pleased that Maher chose Konecranes’ diesel electric straddle carriers to replace aging equipment in its terminal,” says Jost Dämmgen, Sales Manager, Port Cranes, Konecranes. “The state-of-the-art Konecranes straddle carrier combined with service, spare parts, and a training package will surely help our customer reach a higher level of quality and services.”
