Conductix-Wampfler, port mobile electrification and data transmission technology expert, has just completed a major installation at Portonave in southern Brazil, the first E-RTG conversion project in the country.

The conversion has also made Portonave the first fully electrified container terminal in Brazil.

Alessandro Cezar, general manager Conductix-Wampfler Brazil, said: “The E-RTGs utilise the latest technology to enhance productivity, reliability and flexibility. As a full turnkey project, Conductix-Wampfler Brazil handled every aspect of the conversion of the RTGs, from manufacturing the steel framework, to installation, to startup.”

Portonave’s full fleet of 18 RTGs, covering 29 container blocks, was converted to E-RTGs using Conductix-Wampfler’s fully automated Drive-In L system and conductor rails.

Conductix-Wampfler’s Drive-In L conductor rail solution is its compact, lightweight design, which makes it suitable for any kind of RTG.

Because it uses a full electric drive system, no additional pneumatic or hydraulic units are needed. Its integrated data transmission system, auto-steering-system and diagnostic and monitoring system and other safety devices help to pave the way towards complete automation.

Marcelo Diniz, Portonave S/A’s Maintenance Manager, said: “Investing in all-electric RTGs demonstrates our commitment to our mission of delivering high quality performance and production levels while preserving the environment, as well as the health and safety of our port operations.”

"Portonave complies with all the requirements of the ISPS Code, ensuring greater competitiveness in our international trade operations and keeping us on par with the world’s best terminals”.
