Demag Cranes launches Gottwald Model 2 Harbour Crane
Gottwald Port Technology, a subsidiary of Demag Cranes, has launched its new Model 2 Harbour Crane, specifically designed to meet the needs of smaller terminals.
The Model 2 is the first member of Gottwald’s Small Crane Family, which has now extended Gottwald’s Generation 5 Harbour Cranes into the realms of smaller cargo handling applications.
The new model has a maximum lifting capacity of 80 tons, a radius of up to 40 meters and hoisting speeds of up to 120 meters per minute.
As part of the launch of the Model 2 range, Gottwald has introduced a new crane type, the G HRK Rubber Tyred Portal Harbour Crane. In a statement, Gottwald said that this crane type combines the mobility of its rubber tyred G HMK Mobile Harbour Crane with the benefits associated with a drive under portal solution, such as the G HSK Portal Harbour Crane.
In addition, Gottwald is also offering the new Model 2 as a Floating Crane, G HPK Harbour Pontoon Crane, as a G HSK Portal Harbour Crane on a barge, with individually tailored barges, or as a fixed G HPK Pedestal Mounted Harbour Crane.
“Our Model 2 fully meets the demand for a versatile handling machine, constructed specially for smaller maritime and river ports,” said Giuseppe Di Lisa, Head of Port and Intermodal Cranes at Demag Cranes.
“By combining the diversity of crane types and variants on one hand with our Advance Order Programme on the other, we are able to offer customers tailored solutions and short delivery lead times.”
“This is a concept from which terminal operators all over the world are benefiting,” added Di Lisa.
