Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport) will take delivery of four Konecranes rubber-tyred gantry (RTG) cranes this year to be used at Conley Terminal in Boston.
Massport will operate the four machines by the end of 2019, which will give the operator a told of 12 Konecranes RTGs. The order was booked last year.
The units on order are 16-wheel machines lifting 40 tonne containers one-over-five, at six container rows wide plus truck lane.
They will be equipped with the manufacturer’s active load control (ALC) system, which aims to eliminate container swag.
The units will also be equipped with the auto-steering feature.
