Belgium crane rental company Goeyvaerts adds to fleet



Belgium’s Goeyvaerts-R bvba (Goeyvaerts) has ordered two new eco-efficient Generation 6 Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbour cranes to support its growing rental fleet across ports in the Netherlands and Belgium.

Goeyvaerts, a longtime Konecranes customer, is a family-owned crane rental company. The cranes, ordered in July, will be handed over in November 2021.

“We need more cranes to meet rental demand,” says Rudi Goeyvaerts, CEO of Goeyvaerts. “We’ve been with Konecranes a long time and have been very satisfied with our Generation 4 and 5 Mobile Harbor Cranes. We’ve studied the new Generation 6 cranes and its advantages. Indeed, a very smart development, which will raise the benchmark for reliability and service life in the rental market.”

Konecranes said the order would allow the rental company to cut fuel and maintenance costs, as well as emissions.
