The successful cooperation between Mantsinen and the Port of Norrköping has continued into 2016 with Norrköping taking into use two brand new, electric motor material handling cranes that operate on rails.
The purpose of the investment is to enhance productivity. The aim of the Port of Norrköping is to make itself an ever more attractive export port for Swedish industry.
Mantsinen plans to offer solutions for bulk and breakbulk handling at the lowest possible unit costs.
The Mantsinen 120 ES and the Mantsinen 200 ES were delivered to Norrköping in March and June 2016. The cranes are based on standard machine design, however, the functionality of the end results in the world's largest hydraulic boom cranes is determined by numerous extra technical details, features and equipment.
For example, the Mantsinen 200 ES has a 15 m gantry undercarriage on rails and the reach of the crane including the attachment is 40 m.
The machine is also equipped with a special attachment for 4 timber packages that is fully hydraulically controllable in all directions; nothing similar has ever been seen before – at least not in Scandinavia. The 200 ES is even able to efficiently load timber on to ocean liners of 30 000DWT.
Both machines have the HybriLift energy saving system as standard equipment enabling up to a 35% saving in energy consumption. The energy efficiency of the machines is enhanced by the fact that Mantsinen is able to offer the right machine for each need: the excellence of the machines is based on precise engineering, structural strength calculations and, whenever needed, new solutions.
"Mantsinen has kept us in the loop about the progress of the project and respected the set requirements and observations made during the project. Crane investments are part of the published strategy of the Port, including our plans to develop handling volumes and the productivity of material handling – while also taking steps to reach our environmental goals through the reduction of energy consumption and environmental impacts. According to our calculations, this investment will help us to reach greater productivity and also lower unit costs," explain Stefan Sundén, Norrköping’s Purchase and Project Manager, and Ola Hjärtström, the Marketing Manager.
