Konecranes will supply 18 cranes to three European ports
Konecranes will supply 18 rubber tyred gantry cranes (RTGs) with automation systems to three different container terminals. There will be six cranes in each port: the port of Gävle in Sweden, the port of Liscont in Lisbon and the port of Leixoes near Porto in Portugal. The ports and container terminals have been expanded and modernized and their capacity has increased. The cranes are used for moving shipping containers at the container terminals.
Finnvera granted a EUR 26 million buyer credit guarantee with a 95% guarantee cover to Yilport Holdings A.S., the parent company of the buyer group. The repayment period of the credit is 8.5 years.
The environmental and social impacts and risks were estimated to be at a medium level in the investments to which the deliveries relate. The environmental permits and the completion of the statutory environmental impact assessment procedures were reviewed, but no extensive assessment was carried out at Finnvera, as the deliveries are destinated to EU countries.
