Conductix-Wampfler's electric avenue
Conductix-Wampfler, the world's leading supplier of mobile energy supply and data transmission systems, is offering current operators of rubber-tyred gantry cranes (RTGs) two methods of converting to electrified operation.
To date, the company has completed several projects in China and South Korea totalling 380 RTGs at more than 10 terminals using both systems.
Bigger terminals, said the company, tend to prefer the conductor bar solution. Smaller terminals that need more flexibility in their terminal layout and have less standardised container handling procedures invariably opt for the cable reel solution.
Conductix-Wampfler is now targeting terminals in Europe and the Americas, where operators are becoming increasingly aware of the need to improve air quality and drive down the operating costs of RTGs. This is a cheaper solution than swapping RTGs for RMGs and also allows terminals to retain the operating flexibility in retaining RTGs.
