December 22, 2022  By Don Horne

Nassau Container Port (NCP) has ordered Generation 6 Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbour Crane for container handling at their terminal at Arawak Cay, Nassau, Bahamas.

“Terminal development is a continuous process, and we’re interested in the best available lifting equipment that suits our needs both now and in the future. Konecranes was able to offer us an easily adaptable, high-performance hybrid solution that will help us build even more capacity as we ready our port for shore power and greater energy efficiency. We also appreciate Konecranes’ digital services, which provide deep insight into the crane’s performance and condition,” says Dion Bethel, President/CFO of APD.

The crane will be delivered in July 2023.

With a joint government and private shareholding, Arawak Port Development (APD)/Nassau Container Port (NCP) has a mission to facilitate port growth and business expansion in the region. Its NCP operations play a significant role in this task as the largest container handling operation in Nassau, Bahamas.


Throughput has recovered to pre-pandemic levels and NCP expects this upward trend to continue. So, they decided to invest in a new crane with the advanced technology necessary to simultaneously increase capacity and take them further along the path to electrification.

“Generation 6 Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbour Cranes are building a strong reputation around the world for the many benefits they bring to port facilities. We’re excited that NCP has chosen us for their new container handling crane as they develop their terminal. This order confirms their confidence in the technology of the Generation 6 crane with its high productivity, reliability and eco-efficiency,” says Alan Garcia, Sales Manager, Port Solutions, Konecranes.

This crane is part of Ecolifting, Konecranes’ continuous work to decrease the carbon footprints of customers.
