The machinery, due to come online in September this year, is of the in the G HMK 3405 two-rope variant, capable of lifting up to 100t and having a max outreach of 46 m.
"The new crane will ensure we continue to deliver high standards of customer service and help us attract new business to grow annual throughput to over 4 million tons. It will allow for increased capacity and efficiency through speedier loading and unloading of goods and reduced downtime. This is the first part of a new significant investment plan at the Port, following the publishing of our Masterplan as we gear up for trade in the post-Brexit era," Clare Guinness, CEO, Warrenpoint Port, commented.
Neil Griffiths, Regional Sales & Service Director, Konecranes Port Solutions, added, "Warrenpoint is the fourth biggest port on the island of Ireland and serves both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. Warrenpoint currently operates five Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Cranes, and we are proud that they have again opted for our eco-efficient technology to support their long-term growth. The new crane will help Warrenpoint to further benefit from the port's advantageous geographic situation close to the border with the Republic of Ireland."
