Gottwald portal cranes for Port of Tyne

Gottwald portal cranes for Port of Tyne

The two G HSK 6424 B units are Gottwald Generation 5 cranes, based on proven technology used in over 1,000 mobile harbour cranes (MHCs) to date. Instead of the usual rubber-tyred chassis, the cranes are mounted on a portal, tailored exactly to the infrastructure requirements of the Port of Tyne.

With the award of this contract, there are now six Gottwald portal harbour cranes in the UK, making a total of 34 units of this crane type worldwide. Adding the seven Gottwald floating cranes that are equipped with the same proven MHC technology from the slew gear up, the total number of Gottwald cranes built based on the MHC concept has grown to over 40.
