“When fully operational, the two Terex Gottwald Mobile Harbour Cranes will be doing the work of the four former cranes”
– Harbour Master, Captain Peter Gill
Terex Port Solutions has delivered and commissioned a Terex® Gottwald HMK 170 E Mobile Harbour Crane to St. Peter Port Harbour in Guernsey, UK. This represents the first phase of the project, with another HMK 170 E crane scheduled for delivery during November 2013.
The Cranes will handle 50,000 tons of container freight per year
With 98% of Guernsey’s imports and exports passing through St. Peter Port, the harbour is currently undergoing a 13.75 million pound refurbishment of its freight handling facilities. The modernisation includes the replacement of four existing cranes with two Terex Gottwald cranes, which will handle 50,000 t of container freight per year.
The 63 tons configuration Terex Gottwald HMK 170 E Mobile Harbour Cranes have a radius of 38 m and feature self-powered diesel generators. For increased efficiency and to avoid exhaust emissions within the port, the cranes are hooked up to electrical shore supply power connections.
