As we move in the last quarter of 2014, there have been a spate of green RTG orders from leading port equipment suppliers Liebherr and Kalmar.

Liebherr has secured an order for a further five green RTGs from DP World Asian Terminals, a follow on from the order of two units commissioned at Manila earlier this year. 

The advanced eight wheel RTGs feature numerous environmental, safety and productivity technologies. An eco-friendly variable speed drive will reduce both emissions and fuel consumption per box moved.

The machines benefit from Liebherr’s unique eight rope reeving no-sway system and simultaneous motion of all drives allowing the RTG to attain productivity levels of up to 40% greater than alternative models.

Liebherr Container Cranes has also recently secured a contract for the delivery of four Electric RTGs to the Port of Longoni in Mayotte. These are the first Liebherr RTGs to be delivered to the French islands of Mayotte, which are located between Mozambique and Madagascar.

The crane expert is also shipping eight electric RTGs to Porto Chibatão, Manaus, Brazil, a major port at the confluence of the Amazon and Rio Negro rivers. The RTG’s will join the existing fleet of six RTGs and nine fixed Liebherr cargo cranes at the port.

Cargotec's Kalmar meanwhile, has signed a repeat order for none all-electric RTGs with Piraeus Container terminal (PCT) in Greece.

The Kalmar E-One2 cranes, of which it said four will be the world’s widest, aim to help the port meet its twin goals of increasing both capacity and savings.

They have a highly efficient electric power system which eliminates all emissions, engine noise and the need for hydraulic fuels.
