Gottwald adds strength in the Netherlands

By Euan Youdale12 September 2011

Demag Cranes will deliver five Generation 5 Gottwald mobile harbour cranes to three terminal operators in the Netherlands.

They will be used primarily for handling bulk materials and scrap, but also for general cargo and containers.

Commenting on the decision in favour of the four-rope grab model, one of the three customers, Adri Meertens, Verbrugge Terneuzen Terminals BV managing director, said: "We do not just need high-performance machines for bulk handling but also universally applicable and, as a result, economical cranes to strengthen our fleet."

Thomas Hagen, Demag Cranes COO and member of the management board, added, "These orders confirm and strengthen our position in the Netherlands, which is one of our most important harbour crane markets. At the same time, these orders for mobile harbour cranes for professional bulk handling focus on our leading role in this sector."
