The Mantsinen 120M materials handler offers 35 % less energy consumption

Associated British Ports (ABP) has invested in a new energy efficient Mantsinen crane costing US$3 million (£2.3 million).

The organisation procured the Mantsinen 120M wheeled model to handle the wide range of cargo coming through the port.

Andrew Harston, Regional Director at ABP Wales & Short Sea Ports, said, “Our operations support a diverse range of customers and commodities and we are constantly evolving to accommodate dynamic market trends. The purchase of this adaptable and energy efficient crane will help us enhance the services we provide to our current and future port customers.”

Featuring the Hybrilift energy storage system, the 120M is said to reduce energy consumption – and therefore costs – by 35 per cent and is available with either an electric motor or diesel engine.

According to the manufacturer, the height of the machine’s pylon or gantry can be adjusted according to requirements and its quick coupling is said to allow for attachments to be changed in less than a few minutes.

The new crane will be installed at the Port of Newport in Wales, UK, which ABP described as the country’s second largest conventional steel port.

It will handle mixed cargo including steel, forest products and bulk materials.
