In Q1 2023, Konecranes won an order for two Generation 6 Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Cranes from Sihanoukville Autonomous Port (PAS), its first-ever mobile harbor crane order in Cambodia. The cranes will be delivered in Q4 2023.
PAS is owned and run by the Cambodian government and plays a critical role in the national economy as the country’s only deep-water port. As the rate of cargo throughput continues to rise each year, PAS decided to add mobile harbor cranes to the port’s infrastructure to improve capacity and efficiency.
“Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Cranes stood out as the right solution, offering fast operation for quick vessel turnover combined with impressive eco-efficiency. The electric drive system combined with an external power supply allows us to significantly lower on-site exhaust emissions while reducing operational costs,” says Mr. Ty Sakun, Deputy Director General of Technique, PAS.
“These two cranes represent a milestone for Konecranes in Cambodia, and we thank PAS as well as Ogawa Seiki Co., Ltd (OSC) and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) for facilitating the order. We look forward to building on this regional cargo handling milestone for many years to come,” says Holger Wagner, Regional Sales Manager, Port Solutions, Konecranes.
A strong focus on customers and commitment to business growth and continuous improvement make Konecranes a lifting industry leader. This is underpinned by investments in digitalization and technology, plus our work to make material flows more efficient with solutions that decarbonize the economy and advance circularity and safety.
