Saigon Port JSC ordered another eco-efficient Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Crane for their operations at Tan Thuan Port in southern Vietnam. The new crane will be a Model 3 in the G HMK 3405 variant with a working radius of 46m and a maximum lifting capacity of 100t. The crane handles containers and general cargo as well as bulk materials.

As port facilities rapidly developed in the 1990s and into the 2000s, Saigon Port ordered several mobile harbor cranes and forklifts from Konecranes. With an increase in business, Saigon Port took the step to provide their terminal Tan Thuan with a new Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbor crane.

“Konecranes equipment is very reliable,” says Mr. Huynh Kim Tay, Deputy Technical Manager of Saigon Port. “It always meets the demanding heavy workload we face in the port 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We decided on Konecranes again because we wanted a compact, high-performance crane that would give us a lot of flexibility while fulfilling the technical requirements of the port. And this crane does exactly that.”
