“CONTECON Guayaquil, became aware of our E-RTG technology at last year’s TOC Americas in Buenos Aires,” said Uwe Manthei, Conductix-Wampfler’s senior manager global E-RTG projects. The company was particularly impressed by the potential for energy savings as diesel-driven RTGs account for up to half of the power consumed in a port, and are thus responsible for a significant part of its CO2 emissions.
“Using Conductix-Wampfler’s E-RTG system, cranes can quickly be converted to cost-saving, environmentally friendly electrical operation. We were convinced from the start that the test system would achieve the savings objectives we hoped for and we are already planning another environmentally protective expansion of the port,” said Manmthei.
