The HDC Hyundai Development Company of Korea has ordered a fleet of 28 Konecranes Noell Sprinter Carriers for Busan New Port 2-4 in Busan, Korea. The Sprinter Carriers will be delivered as part of the port’s expansion project 2-4.
Peter Kania, Head of Sales for Straddle Carriers, Konecranes Port Cranes said: “The HDC Hyundai Development Company is a renowned developer of container terminals and we are proud to have received this repeat order as Busan New Port continues to expand. We delivered Sprinter Carriers as part of Busan New Port’s earlier growth phase. This further order is a vote of confidence and trust in the performance and reliability of these machines as horizontal transport vehicles from the quayside, working closely with the automated stacking cranes in the container yard.”
When the Sprinter Carriers on order are delivered and working, Busan New Port will have a Konecranes Noell Sprinter Carrier fleet of 64 machines.
