Konecranes has received an order for nine rubber-tyred gantry (RTG) cranes from Port Houston, Texas, US.
It’s not the first time Konecranes collaborates with the biggest port in Texas; the first Konecranes RTGs to Port Houston were delivered in 2003.
The nine new cranes will be delivered to Port Houston Bayport Container Terminal in early autumn 2018. The order is part of the modernisation project taking place at the port’s container terminals.
“We have experienced a great partnership with Port Houston for a period of over 15 years,” says Jussi Suhonen, sales director, port solutions, region Americas, Konecranes. “This important order is a great demonstration of the partnership and values that we share.”
Just earlier this week, Konecranes announced orders from Indonesia and the US.
