The Civitavecchia Fruit & Forest Terminal SpA company (CFFT), subsidiary of the Belgian holding company Noord Natie, just ordered one new eco-efficient Konecranes Gottwald Model 5 mobile harbor crane as well as a Konecranes used mobile harbor crane to carry out its growing fruit handling activities. The Gottwald Model 5 has a 125t lifting capacity and a 51m outreach. The used crane provides a capacity up to 150t and a maximum outreach of 51m.
« Our long-term strategy foresees the successive expansion of our infrastructure to strengthen our position as a leading terminal for importing bananas and pineapples to Italy. As the backbone of this infrastructure, we have now opted for an impressive solution based on a new and a used crane from Konecranes. The benefits include immediate availability of the cranes, which will lead to improved quayside handling capacity in the short-term », stated the CFFT Managing Director Steven Clerckx.
