Noatum adds another Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbour crane

Noatum Terminal Castellon, part of the Spanish port operator Noatum Maritime, has added another Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbour crane to its fleet.

The Model 6 machine was put into operation in May in Castellon, where it handles mainly bulk but also a number of other cargo types.

It is hoped that this new 125-tonne diesel-electric machine will contribute to the growth of the terminal which is situated some 80 km north of Valencia.

Joaquin Ramon Lestau, CEO at Noatum Terminal Castellon, said: “The machine will allow us to load and unload all kinds of commodities including project cargo and containers.

“Given this variety of tasks, it was logical to opt for the particularly versatile mobile harbour crane technology from Konecranes.”

Noatum already operates seven Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbour cranes of different sizes and generations in other port terminals.

The G HMK 6507 B four-rope variant for Noatum offers a maximum lifting capacity of 125 tonnes, a 50 tonnes grab curve and a maximum outreach of 51 m.
