GCT Canada orders automated Konecranes RTGs
Global Container Terminals (GCT) Canada has ordered 10 Konecranes Rubber Tired Gantry (RTG) cranes with new auto-steering, auto-TOS reporting and auto-positioning features.
The 16-wheel RTGs, with an operator cabin yard screen, will be used at GCT’s British Columbia terminals and included all the features that the 16-wheel Konecranes machines already in use at the terminals have: active load control for maximum container handling productivity and a lifting capacity of 40 LT, lifting 1-over-5 high and 7-plus-truck lane wide.
“GCT has been very satisfied with the performance of our RTGs, and I’m very pleased that they will begin to use our operator-assisting features,” said Heikki Kreku, project manager, Konecranes Port Cranes.
The cranes also comply with the US EPA Tier 4f standard for diesel engines and are designed to be low-emissions and fuel-saving.
Four of the RTG cranes will be delivered to GCT Vanterm, in Vancouver, while the remaining six cranes will be delivered to GCT Deltaport, in Delta, British Columbia. Both deliveries will be in the first quarter of 2019.
Together, the terminals already operate twelve Konecranes RTGs which will be updated with the same features as the new machines.
