Konecranes has won a new order for the delivery of two Konecranes Gottwald Model 8 floating cranes to Winning Logistics Company Limited (Myanmar). This order was placed in the first quarter of 2018 and with these new cranes, Winning has ordered eight cranes in a short period.
The new gear will be used primarily for bauxite handling activities off the coast of Guinea by transhipping bauxite from river barges to cape size vessels.
Designed for use on the open sea, the Model 8 floating cranes have a maximum outreach of 43 m and a powerful 63 tonne grab curve. They are designed in accordance with Lloyd’s Register Code for lifting appliances in a marine environment. This allows them to operate at wind speeds of up to 24 m / s and at maximum wave heights of 2.5 m.
