Oslo receives ‘quiet’ and ‘camouflaged’ STS cranes

The Port of Oslo has received two ship-to-shore (STS) cranes from Konecranes for its Oslo Sjursoya container terminal.

Konecranes claimed in a statement that the cranes are “probably the most silent and eco-efficient STS cranes in the world”.

On top of this, the cranes have been painted with a specially designed colour scheme so that they blend in with the surrounding seashore and landscape.

The terminal is located on a jut of land sticking out into the Oslo Fjord and it borders densely populated areas of Oslo.

The cranes are equipped with LED lights for improved eco-efficiency; they have twin-lift operation, a lifting capacity of 64 tonnes and an outreach of 40 m.
