KCI Konecranes for Gdynia Port

Monday, August 15, 2005
KCI Konecranes has been contracted for the design and supply of two Post Panamax Ship-to-Shore (STS) container cranes for Baltic Container Terminal (BCT) in Gdynia, Poland. The cranes will be delivered before the end of 2006. Baltic Container Terminal (BCT) achieved a throughput of 372,000 TEU in 2004 and is on course for another healthy increase in throughput in 2005. BCT has seen consistent double-digit traffic growth since its parent International Container Terminal Services Inc (ICTSI) acquired the terminal in early 2003 under a government privatisation programme. The order for the new STS container cranes follows on from extensive investments by BCT in new and upgraded yard equipment designed to raise the terminal’s annual throughput capacity to one million TEU per/yr. This spring BCT took delivery of its second Panamax dimension STS crane from KCI Konecranes, which will raise BCT’s annual capacity to 600,000TEU/yr. The new STS cranes have a wider outreach of 46 m enabling them to handle containers for Post Panamax size vessels.
