Port of Virgina expands its Konecranes ASCs fleet
Konecranes has been contracted to deliver 36 Automated Stacking Cranes (ASCs) to the Port of Virginia for a major capacity expansion investment that is part of the port’s ongoing drive to improve operational efficiency, capacity, and competitiveness in the global shipping market.
The order’s value is over €130 million and it will be booked in Q2 2023. The ASCs are for the Norfolk International Terminals North Terminal project and will be delivered in two batches of 18 units, with the initial batch planned for delivery by mid-2025 and the subsequent batch anticipated to arrive by mid-2027.
By placing this latest order, the Virginia Port Authority – owner and operator of The Port of Virginia’s five general cargo terminals – is once again showing its unwavering trust in the capabilities of Konecranes to deliver dependable and effective terminal solutions.
The Port of Virginia is a multipurpose port serving global markets. Its modern infrastructure, strategic positioning, and commitment to efficiency make it a vital gateway for international trade, benefiting various industries and economies throughout the country. The port is a longtime Konecranes customer, having received its first delivery of 30 ASCs in 2007 and subsequently ordering a further 86 in 2016.
