Danish manufacturer NC Nielsen has delivered what it claims as the world’s largest reach stacker.

The 152 tonne lifting capacity model 152 330 TH went to Blue Water Shipping in Esbjerg. Having been commissioned it was put to work moving wind turbine tower sections, nacelles and other heavy components. Blue Water Shipping wanted flexibility and sees the new stacker as an alternative to a crane. It is based on a Konecranes 4545 reach stacker.

Søren Messmann, Blue Water Shipping general manager of the port services division, commented, “Now we can handle the heaviest lifting and transport tasks ourselves by combining our machines for the different projects. For instance, we can lift objects of up to 250 tonnes with the world’s largest reach stacker on one end and one of our 100 tonne reach stackers on the other – or operate with extremely heavy objects hanging on the hook. This sets us up to handle the transport projects of the future.”

On working with NC Nielsen, Messmann said, “We have had fantastic co-operation with NC Nielsen. We have carried out open, joint and constructive development work with plenty of ideas on the table. NC Nielsen has been good at grabbing the ideas and turning them into technical solutions. There have been no restrictions in principle, and that way of thinking moves the boundaries of what is possible.”
