Konecranes has won a public tender from Copenhagen Malmö Port (CMP) to supply container handling equipment for a new container terminal in Copenhagen. Eight hybrid straddle carriers will be delivered in Q4 2023, and two ship-to-shore (STS) cranes are scheduled for delivery in Q1 2025. The order was booked in Q2 2023.
The existing container terminal in Copenhagen will move a few kilometers to a better location in Ydre Nordhavn. It will be completed by 2025. CMP is responsible for the operational activities and for the machines that will handle containers at the terminal.
“It will be a future-proof terminal that will serve customers at a high level and ensure the best possible supply of goods and products to Zealand. In such a busy port we demand high performance from our equipment, but we also want to be one of the most sustainable ports in the world by 2025. In our evaluation process, sustainability was one of the most important factors. The hybrid straddle carriers from Konecranes provide the same power as fully diesel machines while significantly lowering on-site exhaust emissions,” says Povl Dolleris Røjkjær Ungar, COO, Copenhagen Malmö Port.
“CMP is serious about sustainability and so is Konecranes. Our Ecolifting approach is a good fit with CMP’s sustainable approach. Their trust in our technology and expertise will be rewarded as they move into a new and exciting period in the history of the port. We look forward to continuing our work with them for many years to come,” says Mikael Johansson, Sales Manager, Port Solutions, Konecranes.
This order is part of Ecolifting™, Konecranes’ continuous work to decrease the carbon footprints of our customers. From eco-optimizing diesel drives, to hybridization and fully-electrified fleets, we will continue to do more with less.
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.
