Bahamas Port Goes Electric with New Mobile Harbor Cranes

Business Featured

Arawak Port Development Limited (APD) has ordered a Konecranes Gottwald ESP.6 mobile harbor crane to add substantial extra capacity to their terminal at the Port of Nassau. This crane will be the first at the port to run on mains power, which means zero emissions during operation. The crane was ordered in Q1 2024 and will be delivered in Q3 2024.

APD operates one of the largest port facilities in the Caribbean, and is expanding its Nassau facilities with new container handling equipment to keep pace with growing demand. With one Konecranes Gottwald Generation 6 mobile harbor crane already operating at the harbor, APD ordered another to fully leverage the crane’s high capacity and outstanding performance, plus its lower emissions from electric operation.
