Helsinki, Finland, 16 Jan – Finnish company Konecranes plans to build and deliver two ship-to-shore cranes to Cornelder de Moçambique, the management company of the port of Beira, the company said in a statement issued Thursday.

The port of Beira is Mozambique’s main port facility and handles cargo to and from Mozambique, Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe and the eastern region of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Konecranes also said it had received the order at the end of December 2011 and that the two cranes would be put in place at the port of Beira in 2013, and would be used at the container terminal.

Cornelder de Moçambique is a partnership set up in 1998 by Dutch company Cornelder Holding and Mozambican state rail and port company Portos e Caminhos de Ferro de Moçambique to manage the container and general cargo terminal at the port of Beira.

Konecranes provides elevation solutions for a number of industrial sectors as well as for work sites, ports and terminals. (macauhub)
