Kone To Build Multipurpose Double-Boom Crane For Port Of Jacksonville

Kone Corporation of Finland will manufacture one of the world's largest multi-purpose double-boom cranes for harbor use under a contract awarded by the Jacksonville Port Authority in Florida. In addition to its record heavy-load lifting capacity of 100 long tons, Kone reports that the crane will be the first of its type to go into operation in an American harbor. Delivery is set for spring 1985.

The multi-purpose crane concept, as pi- oneered and refined by Kone, increases the versatility and flexibility of ports' quays. One crane can handle a great variety of commodities, regardless of any specialized handling equipment they may require. The crane's capability covers not only general cargo, heavy loads and bulk materials, but all sizes of containers as well as continuous, high-speed operation.

Idle time is reduced, while the amount of efficient usage increases.
