TCB Group is acquiring additional container handling equipment for its terminals in line with continuous growth in container traffic. The company first acquired Konecranes equipment in 1993, and today has several types of Konecranes cranes in its terminals.
The RTGs ordered are new-generation units that have been designed to take account of future environmental requirements. Thanks to a special fuel saving system, they can offer economies of up to 30% in fuel consumption. They have a lifting capacity of 50 tonnes and can stack one-over-five containers high and six plus truck lane wide.
“We chose Konecranes RTGs because of their great performance, high availability and low operating and maintenance costs. Our crane drivers like them very much, thanks to the good driving sensation and accurate control given by the 16-wheel configuration and the Active Load Control system,” commented Sergio Osete, Project Manager, TCB Group.
