Material handling in India
In the Indian seaport of Sanegaon, the sales and service partner Forsenia Engineering Pvt. Ltd. was able to deliver a new SENNEBOGEN type 880 Classic material handling machine in June 2014 (Fig.). The customer, Esquire Shipping & Trading Pvt. Ltd., uses the machine for handling all bulk goods.
To meet the increasing demands of modern material handling in the port of Sanegaon, the owners rely on a multi-functional material handling machine that outdoes the previous material handling excavator in terms of reach and capacity many times over. Fitted with 20 m long equipment, it can unload the arriving ships at any water level. Thanks to the mobile 4-axle, wide-gauge undercarriage, the SENNEBOGEN 880 Classic can be flexibly moved along the 200 m quay. Powered by an economical 570 kW diesel engine with eco mode and idle automation, the 880 primarily unloads coal with a 14 m³ double shell grab. For use in ports, the SENNEBOGEN 880 was given a special varnishing for maritime climates; in addition, all cylinders are protected against saltwater with covers and coatings. As a sales and service partner, Forsenia handles regular service and is the local contact.
