Demag Cranes has received an order to supply two mobile harbour cranes to Canada. The two identical machines are 4-rope grab cranes for professional bulk handling. Vale Inco (Vale), the second-largest mining and metals company in the world, a new Demag Cranes customer, will be using the cranes for handling nickel and limestone at its terminal in Long Harbour (southeast Newfoundland and Labrador). "The bulk market offers tremendous potential and has, for some years, been a focal point in our Port Technology segment," emphasised Thomas H Hagen, Member of the Management Board of Demag Cranes AG and COO. "Around a quarter of the Gottwald Harbour Cranes sold last year are for professional bulk handling. The considerable strategic importance to Demag Cranes of the bulk-handling market is also reflected in the acquisition of the UK company, DB Controls. That company has renowned capabilities in software and advisory services in the field of automating bulk-handling equipment," Hagen said.
