Deliveries of the equipment will start this year (2011) with the first RTGs and continue with STS cranes up to and during 2013. The parties have agreed not to disclose the value of the order.
The super post-Panamax STS cranes, which share the same design as cranes delivered to GPA by the manufacturer several years ago, will have a lifting capacity of 66 tonnes and an outreach of 61 metres.
The 16-wheel RTGs have a lifting capacity of 50 tonnes and will be able to stack 1-over-5 containers high and six plus truck lane wide. They have been designed to take future environmental requirements into account, incorporating Konecranes’ fuel-saving system, which eliminates idling and also reduces noise and emissions. According to the company, this results in the machines using up to 30% less fuel than conventional RTGs.
