Eurotransit has ordered two rail-mounted gantry (RMG) cranes for its new intermodal terminal under construction in Dostyk, near the border between Kazakhstan and China.
The order was booked in August 2021 and the cranes will be delivered in Q4 2022.
The units on order will tranship containers on trains running between Kazakhstan and China.
Erlan Dikhanbaev, director of Eurotransit, said: “The Konecranes RMGs are central to our ambitious growth plans. We have very demanding environmental requirements – we often have to deal with strong winds and very low temperatures.
“We also had very demanding requirements for container handling productivity and reliability. Konecranes convinced us with their reliable technology and service support.”
The machines will have a railspan of 32 m and will serve 6 train tracks, lifting containers 1-over-2.
They will be equipped with an intuitive GUI, with extra visibility provided by video cameras on the spreader and under the trolley, noted the Finnish company.
The cranes will also be equipped with the manufacturer’s DGPS Skew Control System, and the smart features Auto-positioning and Auto-TOS Reporting.
