Under the agreement, Fantuzzi will promote Regen as a ‘proven retrofit technology’ with existing crane customers. About 120 new RTGs produced by Fantuzzi’s subsidiary, Noell Crane Systems (China) Ltd, could be fitted with the Regen system each year. There are over 1,100 RTGs operating worldwide.
Newly appointed Fantuzzi COO and general manager of Noell, Maurizio Altieri, said that customers expect to be provided with new technologies. “We have decided to add the Vycon flywheel system on our cranes to provide customers with new technology to enhance fuel conservation and reduce emissions,” he commented.
Noell Crane Systems (China) was established in 1996 as a joint venture between the Fantuzzi Group and China Merchants Heavy Industries. It produces port equipment, RTG and STS (ship-to-shore) cranes.
