荷兰的ZHD Stevedores公司 (ZHD)于2020年7月订购了两台生态高效的科尼Gottwald 6型移动式港口起重机——一台用于多德雷赫特（Dordrecht），另一台则用于穆尔代克（Moerdijk）。这些起重机将于2021年2月交付，并于2021年3月底调试，用于装卸干散货、钢卷、杂货和集装箱。
In July 2020, ZHD Stevedores (ZHD) ordered two eco-efficient Konecranes Gottwald Model 6 Mobile Harbor Cranes for their operations in the Netherlands – one for Dordrecht and one for Moerdijk. With delivery in February and commissioning by the end of March 2021, the cranes will handle dry bulk, steel coils, breakbulk and containers.
这两台新型科尼Gottwald 6型移动式港口起重机为G HMK 6407 B，带有四绳抓斗装置，可用于装卸干散货。起重机的最大起升能力为100吨，适合装卸钢卷、杂货和集装箱。两台起重机将准备用于浮码头操作，改造后具有多功能性，可用于多码头操作和多式联运。此外，起重机具有不同的支撑底座，因而可放置在狭窄空间进行操作。
The two new Konecranes Gottwald Model 6 mobile harbor cranes are the G HMK 6407 B variant in a four-rope grab configuration for dry bulk handling. With a maximum lifting capacity of 100 tons, they are suitable to handle steel coils, breakbulk and containers. Both cranes will be prepared for operations on a pontoon, a modification that provides the versatility needed for multiterminal and multimodal operations. Furthermore, they have different propping bases allowing the crane to be placed and operated in narrow spaces.
Both cranes feature advanced mobile harbor crane drive technology from Konecranes that meets EU Stage V emission standards. Additionally, the cranes are prepared for connection to an external power supply, providing ZHD maximum flexibility in terms of energy source and points of operation.
The cranes are also equipped with the latest Konecranes digital services such as web reporting and bidirectional remote access that allows ZHD to share crane data in order to improve performance and maintenance work.
“早在20年前，我们就订购了第一台Gottwald移动式港口起重机——HMK 300 EG。这台起重机性能良好，但是时候更新换代了。目前，我们拥有两台6型起重机。其中一台用于自航浮码头，并已经设计和建造成为一种独一无二的50吨浮式起重机（“Ahoy 50”）。我们相信，再次投入的两台起重机能够满足我们日益增长的运作需求。这些起重机久经验证，具有耐久性和高性能，有助于推广我们的业务。因此，我们对科尼起重机信赖有加，期待进一步拓展我们的产能。”
“Exactly 20 years ago, we ordered our first legacy Gottwald mobile harbor crane – a HMK 300 EG.This crane has served us well, but it’s time to get a replacement. We already have two Model 6 cranes, one of which is placed on a self-propelled pontoon and has been constructed and engineered as a one-of-a-kind 50-ton floating crane called “Ahoy 50”. We believe an investment in two more cranes is the right answer to our growing operations. The cranes have proven to be durable, high-performance machines and have really helped to build our business. So, it was logical for us to rely on Konecranes again to expand our capacity.”
