Multi-Link Terminals, operating a container handling facility in the Vuosaari Harbour, will receive in 2019 what's said to be the biggest widespan ship-to-shore (STS) crane ever made by Konecranes.

The single-lift spreader machinery will have a railspan of 48 m, a lifting height of 31 m, and an out- and backreach of 40 m and 20 m, respectively. In addition, extra features, such as ship profiling, container positioning, and remote controlling, will be added to MLT's new STS.

"Multi-Link Terminals has been our customer for a long time. The new [LNG-powered] container ships [of Containerships] will be coming to their Vuosaari terminal soon, and this STS crane will handle them efficiently," Ville Hoppu, Sales Manager, Konecranes Port Cranes, commented.

Dirk van Assendelft, Managing Director, Multi-Link Terminals, added, "We are excited to receive such a state-of-the-art machine in our fleet. It will enable us to get to the next performance level."
