Crane Investment Makes the Port of Norrköping More Attractive

"The cooperation between Mantsinen and the Port of Norrköping began in 2011 when we purchased the first Mantsinen 120 R HybriLift® material handling crane with tracks. The cooperation started well and continued in 2016 when we purchased from Mantsinen two new electric material handling machines on rails.

The purpose of the crane investments was to enhance productivity and discontinue the use of traditional cable cranes. All in all, the goal of the Port of Norrköping is to develop an ever more attractive export port for the Swedish industry particularly in the flow of selected breakbulk materials, such as timber, paper, pulp and FIBC bulk bags.

The collaboration with Mantsinen has been first-rate starting from conceptualising and engineering the cranes and ending with their delivery. Mantsinen has kept us in the loop about the progress of the project and respected the set requirements and observations made during the project.

Our operators have welcomed the new cranes. They have particularly appreciated the controllability of the machine, its working comfort and spacious cab. The lifting attachments delivered with the cranes have fulfilled our expectations: for example, a new attachment to lift 4 timber packages was tailored on the Mantsinen 200; the like of it has never been seen at least in Scandinavia.

Crane investments are part of the published strategy of the Port including the plans to enhance handling volumes and productivity in material handling, but also taking steps to reach our environmental goals by decreasing energy consumption and environmental impact. We have calculated that this investment helps us achieve higher productivity and lower unit costs."
