Sennebogen introduced its new 850 E-series, a mobile material handler for port handling, at Bauma 2016 and the applications are being realised in Netherlands for Spaansen
With its extension fleet of ships, material handlers and trucks, Spaanican can guarantee the highest level of quality and reliability. At the Ljmuiden port, the firm are currently handling around four million tonnes of sand each year, utilising the Sennebogen material handlers. At the end of 2016, the first material handler from the new generation of SENNEBOGEN 850 E-Series machines went into operation, loading up to 900 tonnes of sand per hour.
With a reach of up to 21 m and a load capacity of up to 5.7 tonnes, the Sennebogen 850 is ideal for meeting the requirements of port handling. Its curved banana boom can extend to a reach depth of up to 12m, allowing large ships to be loaded safely. At the same time, hoppers at a height of up to 17m can be operated safely. From the elevated cab, the driver has an idea view of the work area. The Maxcab can be continuously adjusted by 3m in height and moved 2.6m forward.
A 224 kW diesel engine keeps the material handler running. The system is supported by the Green Hybrid energy recovery system. The functionality is simple to conceive. An energy recovery cylinder mounted on the boom in between the two hoist cylinders offsets the weight of the boom in its function, significantly reducing energy costs by up to 30 per cent. This additional hydraulic cylinder stores the energy produced when the boom is lowered, in compressed gas cylinders placed in the rear of the machine. This accumulated energy is then provided during the next stroke. The principle is similar to a spring being compressed and then releasing its energy when it is allowed to expand.
