Demag Cranes is further expanding its business in the Netherlands with the delivery of a total of five Generation 5 GottwaldMobile Harbour Cranes to three major terminal operators. The buyers, existing customers of Demag Cranes, use these machines primarily for handling bulk materials and scrap, but also for general cargo and containers. Commenting on the decision in favour of the Gottwald four rope grab cranes, Adri Meertens, Managing Director Verbrugge Terneuzen Terminals B.V., one of the customers, said, “We do not just need high performance machines for bulk handling but also those that aqre universally applicable and, as a result, economical, to strengthen our fleet. After carefully weighing the available options, it was apparent that the Gottwald cranes offered us the best choice.Gottwald Mobile Harbour Cranes offer high handling rates, long service lifetimes due to high crane classification, short delivery lead times and low specific investment costs, combined with flexibility in daily operation, as they cannot only work on bulk, but as the need arises, also on other goods. And that’s exactly what we need.” “These orders confirm and strengthen our position in the Netherlands, which is one of our most important Harbour Crane markets,” emphasised Thomas H. Hagen, Member of the Management Board of Demag Cranes AG and COO.
