No More Fuel Bills - Mantsinen 70 ER

Ege Celik steel mill in Aliağa, Turkey has been using three electrically powered Mantsinen 70 ER material handlers since 2013. Two of the machines work in the port, unloading steel scrap from incoming ships, and one at the Ege Celik steel mill.

Ege Celik has also three older diesel powered Mantsinen material handlers. When Ege Celik was acquiring new machines in 2012 and 2013, a strong emphasis was on energy costs. Mantsinen responded with the 70 ER, an 85 tonne crawler type machine with electric motor and a side mounted power cable.

The machines have substantially more lifting capacity than the older diesel powered machines, but they save approximately 70 % of energy cost and have zero emissions. “Other important advantages are a remarkable reduction in maintenance costs as the electric motor needs practically no service, and the total absence of fuel refilling”, says the steel mill purchasing supervisor Mesut Cebeci.

All three machines have the Mantsinen Diesel Power Pack to enable the machine to move from one electric outlet to another. Mobility of the machines with this configuration, especially in the port application, is no problem at all. The machine at the steel mill has a longer power cable, and the cable is protected against falling objects by a special cover.

All machines are equipped with Mantsinen orange peel grabs.
