Konecranes Reveals STS Crane Concept

Konecranes’ Director Port Technology, Dr. Hannu Oja, revealed a new concept for STS cranes at Port Technology’s Container Terminal Automation Conference  on March 14, 2018.

The crane, equipped with a boom that can reach across the entire width of the ship, allows for container pick-up, transfer and drop-down by a trolley that travels along the boom and a fixed bridge girder.

The crane could travel along the quay on rails to position itself as needed with each line of containers on the ship deck or below, or that it could also move from one ship to another.
