More Gottwalds for Winning Logistics

Konecranes Gottwald Model 8 floating crane

24. May 2018 

Singapore based Winning Logistics has ordered two 100 tonne Konecranes Gottwald Model 8 floating cranes.

The Model 8 floating cranes provide a maximum radius of 43 metres and are able to operate at wind speeds of up to 24 metres a second and at maximum wave heights of 2.5 metres.

The new order follows one placed in late 2017 for two other Model 8 cranes – see the story here – bringing the company’s total number of Gottwald Model 8 floating cranes in its fleet to eight by the end of the year. The new cranes will help with Winnings’ bauxite transhipment activities off the coast of Guinea, Africa.

Winning Logistics vice president Wang Chuanyang said: “Our existing cranes have proven themselves to be particularly productive and reliable in the very rough open-sea environment. This is why we have opted time and again for floating cranes from Konecranes.”

Konecranes sales and marketing director Giuseppe Di Lisa added: “Konecranes Gottwald floating cranes are derived from our mobile harbour crane technology and highlight our pioneering role in this field. The first floating cranes went into operation on the Mississippi River in 2004.

Thereafter, they quickly found their way to the open sea. Winning’s decision to continue to rely on Konecranes Gottwald floating cranes confirms Konecranes’ leading role in this segment.” SOURCE:
