Konecranes delivers its first busbar RTG to Turkey

The busbar-powered RTG, which is also equipped with network braking, will reduce energy consumption by up to 60% and reduce local emissions by up to 95%.  All the busbar RTGs will run on electricity drawn from the local grid.  Dispensing with hydraulics, all the machines will be equipped with a full-size diesel generator with Konecranes’ Diesel Fuel Saver technology in case of electricity blackouts.

Having a capacity of 615,000 teu, the port operator is investing in energy-saving solutions, emphasising eco-efficient technology in its operations.  The container terminal serves the Anatolian side of Istanbul and the regional economy of Kocaeli.
