Konecranes Books Two Panamax-Size STS Cranes

Konecranes recently received an order from the Port of Oslo, Norway, for two Panamax-size Ship-to-Shore (STS) cranes with an option for one more.

According to Konecranes, these should be the most silent and eco-efficient STS cranes in the world. They will be delivered in the autumn of 2015.

Silence is golden: our goal is to deliver the world’s most silent STS cranes to Port of Oslo. We have applied the most advanced noise reduction knowledge and technology in order to meet the Port of Oslo’s very tough requirements,” says Juha Aatola, Konecranes’ General Manager, STS Cranes.We succeeded. We’re very pleased that the Port of Oslo chose Konecranes’ STS cranes.”

The Oslo Sjursöya container terminal is located close to densely populated areas in Oslo. The terminal takes its environmental responsibility very seriously, especially its noise emissions and carbon dioxide footprint. Extremely stringent noise and CO2 emissions limits were set for the new STS cranes.

Fabrication and erection of the cranes will take place in Finland. The STS cranes will be equipped with the Ship Profiling and Trim/List/Skew systems are included, as well as LED lights for improved eco-efficiency.

The cranes will have twin-lift operation for maximum handling capacity, a lifting capacity of 64 tons, and an outreach of 40 meters.
