Four Konecranes super-post-Panamax ship-to-shore cranes are en route to the Port of Savannah, Ga., as part of an order Konecranes received from the Georgia Ports Authority in 2011.
In addition to the four STS cranes, the order included 20 Konecranes rubber-tire gantry cranes, which have been delivered.
The STS cranes have a lifting capacity of 66 tons and an outreach of 61 meters (about 200 feet). Their design is identical to the STS cranes Konecranes delivered to the GPA a few years ago. The port currently operates 116 Konecranes RTG cranes and 23 Konecranes STS cranes.
