Konecranes received an order for high-tech portal jib crane from Brasilian shipyard.

In June 2013 Konecranes received a further order from Brazilian shipyard Estaleiro Enseada do Paraguaçu – EEP. The high-tech portal jib crane is scheduled to be taken into operation in August 2014. The order follows up the Konecranes Goliath gantry crane that the same customer ordered in March 2013. The parties have agreed not to disclose the value of the order, but the price for this type of crane typically is in the range of $6-8 million, depending on the exact scope of delivery.

The crane will be equipped with the latest in crane technology. With a lifting capacity of 70 tons, a lifting height of 55 meters and a reach of 80 meters with high speed movement, the portal jib crane will be an effective partner to the gantry crane, which is meant for heavy duty lifting, in the material flow at the shipyard.

“Delivery of the Goliath gantry crane ordered previously is going ahead at full speed and the new order will give clear synergies both for our customer and us, e.g. in project management, supply chain and timing,” says Jussi Rautiainen, General Manager, Shipyard Cranes. “The most valuable aspect will, however, be the operational synergies from the cranes, like e.g. the same basic technology easing operator work, common spare parts and service. These all mean increased safety and productivity, which the client will benefit from throughout the life of the cranes.”

The new EEP shipyard has been under construction since 2012. The shipyard’s operations are expected to begin in 2014, with a focus on building and assembling offshore units such as oil production platforms, specialized ships and drill rigs.
