Konecranes Ships 15 RTGs to West Africa

Konecranes has received an order for 15 Rubber Tired Gantry (RTG) cranes from Bolloré Group. The RTGs will be delivered to three container terminals operated in West Africa by Bolloré Africa Logistics. 

Two of these terminals are new Konecranes RTG customers: Togo Terminal in Lomé, Togo (four RTGs) and Benin Terminal in Cotonou, Benin (five RTGs). Six RTGs will be delivered to Bolloré’s container terminal in Pointe Noire, Congo, which already operates Konecranes RTGs.

The 15 RTG cranes will be equipped with the Konecranes Smarter Cabin offering improved ergonomics, visibility and safety. They will also have Auto-steering, Variable Speed Engine and Diesel Fuel Saver technology.

The RTG container positioning systems will be connected to the terminals’ Terminal Operating Systems. The RTG cranes will also be equipped with TRUCONNECT remote monitoring, enabling remote diagnostics for maintenance purposes.

The hydraulics-free, 16-wheel RTGs will have a lifting capacity of 40 tons stacking 1-over-5 containers high and 7 plus truck lane wide.
