CNR relies on Kuenz container cranes

Kuenz has been awarded from its existing French customer the Company Nationale du Rhône, this time not for a trash rack cleaning machine or a hydro-mechanical equipment but for a container crane.

On the Rhône river at Port de Lyon Edouard Herriot, barges will be handled by a brand new Kuenz barge crane featuring an aerodynamic single girder with a lifting capacity of 41 t under fully automatic telescopic spreader. The crane has a rail span of 28 m and two cantilevers of 24m each. Beginning of operation is planned for mid-2019.
