Tyrholm & Farstad order their first crane for Flatholmen terminal
Local demand for logistics services has prompted the Norwegian company Tyrholm & Farstad to place an order for Generation 6 Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Crane for their new Flatholmen terminal in Ålesund. The electric crane has been ordered to expand capacity and reduce carbon emissions at the terminal, with delivery expected in the second quarter of 2024.
According to Konecranes, this is the first crane for Tyrholm & Farstad’s new terminal. An easily adaptable, high-performance solution, the electric crane will handle container and general cargo for the Møre og Romsdal region.
“Our new terminal is an important investment for the future, so we need efficient and sustainable equipment to support it. Konecranes could provide a future-proof mobile harbour crane that combines the best available lifting technology with an innovative electric drive concept and excellent backup support from their local partner. This convinced us that the Generation 6 would be the right choice for our new operation,” says Jan Arve Hoseth, CEO, Tyrholm & Farstad.
“This order illustrates the strength of our long-term partnership with local partner AS BULL. Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbour cranes are popular in Norway and it’s exciting to see our new Generation 6 cranes installed in the new terminal, offering high performance, outstanding reliability and lower emissions for many years to come,” says Hans-Jürgen Schneider, Regional Sales Manager, Port Solutions, Konecranes.
The new terminal at Flatholmen is due to be completed by summer 2024. Tyrholm & Farstad’s new terminal at Flatholmen will provide the company with an increased capacity, meaning it can serve a much larger customer base. In addition, larger dock facilities will facilitate the simultaneous handling of more and larger ships.
