Sennebogen 870E for Freyer at Hafen Germersheim
There’s a new eyecatcher at the Germersheim inland port: Family-owned company Freyer Hafenlogistik is starting 2019 with an 870 E-Series mobile material handler. With a 2-meter-tall pylon, the port machine weighs an impressive 110 tons, yet remains maneuverable and flexible.
The company has recently further developed its fleet with the new 870 E mobile material handler from SENNEBOGEN in order to provide the required flexibility. In addition to two older 305 telehandlers and a smaller 860 from SENNEBOGEN’s D-series, the new port machine fits perfectly into the onsite processes. Thanks to the machine, which has a total length of 25 m, all the ships arriving at the port can be served. During the project planning phase, done in cooperation with Schlüter Baumaschinen, it was particularly important to ensure the filling of the existing 16-m-high silo. Thanks to the generous boom length and high stability of the 110-ton machine, this is no problem at all.
One remarkable aspect is the volume that can now be handled following the machine upgrade. Within just 2.5 hours, ships arriving in Germersheim with around 2,000 tons of gravel can be completely emptied. In total, the 27-man site transports 350,000 tons of bulk and general cargo each year.
