Remote-controlled RMGs for Noatum Bilbao

Noatum Container Terminal Bilbao Kalmar will deliver two single-cantilever RMG cranes to Noatum Container Terminal Bilbao

Two remote-controlled rail-mounted gantry cranes (RMGs) for intermodal operation will improve efficiency and safety at Noatum Container Terminal Bilbao.

Kalmar will deliver two single-cantilever RMGs equipped with a rotating trolley and Bromma YSX45E spreader for single container handling with rated load of 41t. They will be used in the terminal railyard containing four train tracks, five container stacking rows and a service lane for road trucks.

Elvira Gallego Uribe, manager at Noatum Container Terminal Bilbao, commented: “These new cranes replacing our old RMGs are significantly faster, more reliable and future proofed for efficient railyard operation, improving and increasing the security of workers involved in the operations and the containers operated on behalf of our customers."

Automation package

Delivery will take place during the first half of 2019 and will include Kalmar Terminal Logistics System (TLS) automation for supervised remote control.

Ismo Matinlauri, vice president, solutions sales and marketing at Kalmar, part of Cargotec, added: "We are happy to announce this very first Kalmar RMG delivery for the intermodal segment.”

Noatum Container Terminal Bilbao has nine Kalmar RTGs operating their import and export traffic at the terminal.

It is one of the first users of the Kalmar SmartRail automated gantry steering solution for RTGs, which aims to improve safety and operator performance.
