Cranes on Barge

One bright idea – many applications

Konecranes Gottwald Cranes on Barge come into their own in harbors or waterways with limited quay facilities or none at all, and where quay capacities are exhausted. Based on well-proven Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbor crane technology, they can be used on a barge (turnkey solution):

  • On rivers
  • In ports
  • In sheltered waters
  • In coastal waters
  • In open-sea operation

We offer a number of variants.

Configured as a crane on barge

  • Variant as a barge with a pedestal on which the crane is mounted
  • Variant as a barge with rails on which the crane can be moved
  • Allows multiple hatches without warping the barge

One barge, many benefits

  • Independent of landside handling facilities
  • Low specific investment costs
  • Short delivery lead times
  • Avoids lengthy approval procedures
  • No need for costly purchase of additional land or construction of new quays
  • More, larger vessels can be serviced in the port
  • Quay facilities unnecessary for direct transshipment between seagoing ship and barge
  • When additional capacity is required, cranes on barge can supplement land-based handling

Flexible concept

  • Configured to account for ship sizes, cargo types and required handling rates
  • From simple cranes on barge through to comprehensive turnkey crane on barge solutions
