Rotterdam-based Kramer Group recently confirmed a substantial 22-machine order with Konecranes. Three of the machines were ordered in October 2017 and the rest earlier this year.
Rotterdam-based container specialist services company, Kramer, will in the new year add 11 empty container handlersand 11 reach stackers from Konecranes to their fleet. The new equipment will join their existing fleets at both Kramer Group depots: Kramer City Depot at the Waalhaven/Eemhaven and the Kramer Delta Depot at Maasvlakte.
The Konecranes SMV 6/7 ECC 100 DS empty container handlers bought by Kramer are renowned for their speed, and are able to lift and handle empty containers swiftly around the terminal. The machines are designed and built to fit Kramers’ demanding application with wide drive axles and elevated cabs to enable the highest productivity and safety. The 11 Konecranes SMV 4531 TC5 reach stackers are equally well suited, and can lift 45MT in the first row, and 31MT in the second row. Konecranes reach stackers and empty containerhandlers come with exceptionally spacious and ergonomic cabins, also offering a 360-degree vantage point to operators.
