World's first hybrid reach stacker available soon in UK

Jul 16, 2013
The world's first hybrid reach stacker, developed by Konecranes, will soon be available in the UK through suppliers Cooper SH.

The new SMV 4531 TB5 HLT has a 45 tonne lifting capacity and features a hybrid diesel/electric driveline, an electrified hydraulic lifting system, and a super capacitor based energy storage system - significantly cutting fuel consumption and emissions.

Tony Rooney, Cooper SH Director, commented, "This project has been on-going for around two years and we are delighted that it has now entered its field-test mode. It is further proof that SMV (Konecranes) truly are the innovators within the industry having brought to market such designs as glass ‘wrap-around' pillar-less operator cabs, load sensing hydraulics, ECO drive fuel management technology and now this new hybrid technology."

The new hybrid Konecranes reach stacker will continue being field-tested at the Port of Helsingborg's container terminal which is one of Sweden's leading container terminals operating a significant fleet of Konecranes units.
