Finland-based cranes and lifting equipment manufacturer, Konecranes, recently won a repeat order for one of their Model 7 portal harbor cranes from Atakaş Liman İşletmeciliği Ve Tic. A.Ş. in Turkey. This is the third Konecranes Gottwald crane purchased within the last 12-months, and this most recent contract includes an option for another crane in the future.

Due to enter operation in early 2019, the new crane will work in Iskenderun on Turkey’s southeastern coast, handling bulk and later serving large container vessels. The rail-mounted portal harbor crane follows two rubber-tired Konecranes Gottwald Model 7 mobile harbor cranes that entered operations at the port in 2017.

Atakaş Port General Manager, Vedat Ohri said, “Our aim is to provide the greatest benefits to the Mediterranean, Central Anatolia and Southeastern Anatolia regions. To meet our goals, we have chosen reliable and high-performance Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbor crane technology once again. We started our operations with two flexible rubber-tired cranes to handle various types of cargo, but now need rail-mounted cranes for continuous-duty bulk handling. To enable the new crane to work on our rails, Konecranes will team its mobile harbor crane technology with a portal exactly designed to our needs. We are also preparing to load and unload large container vessels with up to 18 rows at a later date.”

Konecranes Regional Sales Manager for Unit Mobile Harbor Cranes, Hans-Juergen Schneider added, “We are proud that this ambitious new Turkish port operator selected our technology right from the outset and continues to opt for it, having come to appreciate its assets.”

the new addition to the Atakas fleet is a four-rope G HSK 7528 B crane. It can provide a lifting capacity of up to 125 tonnes and features a powerful 50-t grab curve for mechanical grab operation and an outreach of up to 54 m.
