One G HMK 7408 and two G HMK 6407 cranes have been ordered by new customer Rodaport, located in Gemlik Bay on the southern Marmara Sea, where Gottwald already has a strong presence. Gemport operates a fleet of four Gottwald cranes, while Borusan, also in Gemlik Bay, operates two HMK 260 E cranes. With the award of the Rodaport contract, Gottwald now has nine MHCs in the Gemlik region.
Antalya, which already has an HMK 300 E unit, has ordered one G HMK 6407 crane. While the cranes for Mardas and Yilport have already been put into service, the other four are currently being shipped or will be shipped soon.
“Turkey has been the pivot point for trade in the Eastern Mediterranean since the early days, and Gottwald cranes have been well established in this important market for a long time now,” says BÃ¼lent Sandal, owner of Eksen and Gottwald’s representative in Istanbul.
