Norwegian logistics company orders Konecranes Generation 6 mobile harbor crane for new terminal
Norwegian logistics provider Tyrholm & Farstad AS has ordered a Generation 6 Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Crane for their new Flatholmen terminal in Ålesund, with the electric crane to expand capacity and reduce carbon emissions. The order was booked in Q3 2023, and delivery will take place in Q2 2024.
Tyrholm & Farstad made the order – the first crane for their new terminal – to extend their business and meet local industry demands for their logistics services. An easily adaptable, high-performance solution, the electric crane will handle container and general cargo for the Møre og Romsdal region.
“Our new terminal is an important investment for the future, so we need efficient and sustainable equipment to support it. Konecranes could provide a future-proof mobile harbor crane that combines the best available lifting technology with an innovative electric drive concept and excellent backup support from their local partner. This convinced us that the Generation 6 would be the right choice for our new operation,” says Jan Arve Hoseth, CEO, Tyrholm & Farstad AS.
“This order illustrates the strength of our long-term partnership with local partner AS BULL. Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbor cranes are popular in Norway and it’s exciting to see our new Generation 6 cranes installed in the new terminal, offering high performance, outstanding reliability and lower emissions for many years to come,” says Hans-Jürgen Schneider, Regional Sales Manager, Port Solutions, Konecranes.
