Florida’s SeaPort Manatee orders 2 Konecranes Cranes


SeaPort Manatee will bring extra capacity to container and general cargo handling at their operations in Tampa Bay, Florida with 2 Konecranes Gottwald ESP.7 Mobile Harbor Cranes. Both cranes will be delivered by the end of the year.

SeaPort Manatee, the closest U.S. deepwater seaport to the expanded Panama Canal, is investing in new equipment to manage anticipated strong growth in container and general cargo traffic. The new cranes will offer the ability to run with electricity from the harbor main.

“These new Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbor cranes will not only help SeaPort Manatee accommodate its growing container business, but their electric drive design will also contribute to the port’s strong commitment to reducing emissions. Both the Florida Department of Transportation and the port’s loyal customers appreciate this dedication to sustainability and the entire community will benefit,” said Carlos Buqueras, SeaPort Manatee’s executive director.
