The two ship-to-shore cranes ordered by Cornelder de Moçambique, the company that manages the Mozambican port of Beira, from Finnish company Konecranes are already operating at the port’s container terminal, the company said in a statement issued in Hyvinkää.

The two cranes, which were ordered in December 2011, have a maximum cargo capacity of 65 tons and can be operated by remote control as well as having a wireless connection to the maintenance workshop.

Cornelder de Moçambique is a partnership set up in 1998 by Dutch company Cornelder Holding, a Rotterdam-based group, 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 was founded over 80 years ago specialised in manufacturing lifting equipment, and has a diverse customer base, which includes the industrial sector, shipyards, ports and port terminals. (macauhub)
