Container Terminal St. Petersburg orders 2 STS cranes from Konecranes


Container Terminal St. Petersburg (CTSP) has ordered two Konecranes Ship-to-Shore cranes, continuing a relationship that dates back to 2008. When the new cranes are in service, CTSP will operate a fleet of 6 Konecranes STSs and 24 Konecranes RTGs. The order was booked in December 2020.

CTSP will receive the cranes in Q1-Q2 of 2022. They will have the size and outreach to handle container ships with 16 container rows across. Mr Aleksandr Scherbinin, Managing Director of CTSP said: “We have been using Konecranes container cranes for a long time, and we have always been satisfied with the crane performance, backed up by excellent local service. When it came time to select new STSs, our choice was relatively easy.”

Given the harsh winters that St. Petersburg experiences, the cranes will be specially designed for operation down to -40 deg C. They will have power chains instead of festoons for high-speed operation, greater reliability, and easier maintenance. The main girder will have a field-proven trapezoidal shape, making it lighter while preserving rigidity. They will also have the Konecranes boom collision prevention system.
