The rental crane expert Goeyvaerts-R bvba, based in Belgium, has recently ordered its 15th Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbour crane. It was placed in the third quarter of 2018. The machine will be delivered to Antwerp in November this year. The new crane, the largest in their fleet, will be an eco-efficient Model 7 mobile harbour crane in the G HMK 7608 variant providing a maximum lifting capacity of 150t and an outreach of up to 54m.
“We started our rental crane business in 2006. Due to the growing need for container twin-lifting and heavy cargo handling, our customers increasingly require larger cranes. The new Konecranes Gottwald Model 7 crane will provide a higher lifting capacity and a wider outreach than our existing machines and will therefore be an excellent addition to our current fleet of 14 Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbour cranes,” explained Rudi Goeyvaerts, CEO of Goeyvaerts-R bvba.
