Busan New Container Terminal orders six sprinter carriers
The order will be delivered by June 2022

Busan New Container Terminal (BNCT) has ordered six Konecranes Noell sprinter carriers to add to its fleet of 36 units, as it looks to support a growing business.

Like their predecessors, the machines on order will transport containers between the quayside and the container yard.

Five of the units on order were booked in June and one in September of 2021. The order will be delivered by June 2022.

The carriers will be the first Stage V compliant container handling machines in the Port of Busan.

They will be equipped with eco-efficient, diesel-electric drives, fulfilling the EU Stage V emission standard, which will help BNCT meet its low-carbon operating targets.

Mynung-gil Jeon, General Manager of BNCT, said: “We received our first Konecranes Noell Sprinter Carriers in 2012 and have come to appreciate their reliability, efficiency, and strong local service support.”

The six units on order are of the type NSC 424 E, lifting containers 1-over-1 high. They are designed to be versatile, maneuverable, speedy machines that keep containers flowing between the quayside and the container yard.
