Konecranes Receives Harbour Crane Order

Wednesday, September 20, 2006
Georgia Ports Authority (GPA), U.S.A. and Konecranes have closed a contract for the delivery of four Super Post Panamax Ship-to-Shore (STS) container cranes and 15 all-electric Rubber Tired Gantry (RTG) cranes to the Garden City Terminal in the Port of Savannah, Georgia. Deliveries will start in the spring of 2007 and continues until April 2008. The value of the order is over $50 Million. As the volume of containers moving through the Port of Savannah escalates and the container vessels grow even larger, bigger and faster cranes are required for container handling. The newly ordered STS cranes can service the largest vessels in the world, and the RTG cranes provide the fastest container flow on the container yard. To date, Konecranes has delivered 11 STS-cranes and 31 RTG-cranes to GPA. "Konecranes has repeatedly delivered equipment to GPA providing outstanding reliability and productivity allowing us to offer consistent value-based services to our customers. We look forward to Konecranes providing us with the next generation of the most advanced equipment in our industry," stated Curtis Foltz, Chief Operating Officer, GPA. "The GPA keeps a keen eye on physical upgrades and expansions to cater for flawless service", says Sami Korpela, Project Manager, Container Cranes. "We are committed to providing productivity enhancing equipment to GPA and are happy to be able to deliver now also to a U.S. port terminal our STS-cranes using the latest Konecranes AC Drive Technology."
