With a 100-tonne lifting capacity, the wheel-mounted Gottwald 8412 crane is able to handle two 20 feet containers at the same time. The crane’s projection capacity extends to the 20th row of containers on board ships, where it can lift 41 tonnes.
As efficient as a dock gantry, this mobile crane offers a productivity of +/- 25 container movements. It will allow to reduce by 30 to 35% the ship visit time by improving the quality of the service given to the shipowners and the economic operators of Cameroon, Chad and the Central African Republic.
The acquisition of the new mobile crane is part of KCT’s investment plan, which also provides for the arrival of five new RTG yard gantries in 2021.
