Handling at Terminal Hamburg


Kuenz provides high efficiency and coordinated operations.

Kuenz quality convinces in

intermodal container handling.

The Rail-Terminal Bremerhaven

Kuenz provides smooth connections

to the European hinterland

The Terminal and Logistic Group Eurogate, with headquarters

in Bremen, Germany, operates Deep Sea Terminals on the

North Sea, in the Mediterranean region and on the Atlantic

ocean, with excellent connections to the hinterland of Europe.

With 10 terminal locations handling 14,2 Million TEU (2008),

Eurogate is one of Europe`s largest terminal operators. The

Eurogate Container Terminal at Hamburg is currently using

six large-vessel berths. 2,7 Million TEU are handled per

year on an area of 1,4 Million m². Bremerhaven is Eurogate´s

largest container terminal with an area of 2 Million m² and

handling of 5,5 Million TEU.

Between 2002–2008, Kuenz installed eight cranes for the train

terminals. By the end of 2009 another four container cranes

will be commissioned at the Hamburg and Bremerhaven

harbour rail heads.

Technical Data for the Hamburg

and Bremerhaven Rail Cranes

The rail mounted container gantry cranes are designed as

two-girder bridge. The steel construction of the gantry consists

of the hinged post, the fixed post and the main girders with

suspension. The hoisting rope reeving for the containerhoisting

gear is executed as a rigid rope-tower. This system

enables swing-free travel in gantry and trolley direction,

as well as with the slewing gear. This guarantees efficient

handling.


The good experience gained with the operation of the

first four RMGs (supplied in 2002) was a key issue for

the further cooperation with Kuenz for the Eurokombi

expansion project in Hamburg. Kuenz convinced again

with experienced project management and the perfect

quality of the cranes.

Christof Ricke, Project Manager Lifting Equipment Eurogate Hamburg

Patented Technology by Kuenz –

rotating travelling gear

The lifetime of the wheels is limited by the wear of the wheel flanges.

This wear is caused by off-track running of the wheels. Tolerances and

temperature changes affect the amount of wear caused by off-track

running.

Rotating travelling gear by Kuenz

The patented Kuenz solution allows for swivelling of the travel unit in

the horizontal direction to compensate for any inclination of the travel

unit. That means: all wheels are running on the track. Stabilizers on

both sides of the travel unit make it possible for optimized transmission

of the forces to the steel structure.

This solution enables a major wear-reduction of the wheel flanges,

which means a significant increase in the lifetime of the wheels.

"The good experience gained by our collegues in

Hamburg was a key issue for the decision in working

together with Kuenz.

Kuenz confirmed the Hamburg experience with a well

established project management and the perfect quality

of the cranes also for the Bremerhaven project.
