More RTGs for India

10. October 2017 | Comments (0)

India’s Bharat Mumbai Container Terminals has ordered 18 40 tonne Konecranes Noell Rubber Tired Gantry cranes.

The cranes will be used to stack containers 1-over-5, covering six container rows plus track lane. They will be equipped with diesel generators powering variable speed motors, helping reduce fuel consumption by up to 33 percent.

The new order is a follow on option to an initial order placed for 18 gantry cranes in August along with four 65 tonne RMG cranes. The machines in the initial order have to started to arrive, with deliveries due to be completed by the end of the year. The units in the new order will be delivered in two lots - nine units by August next year and the remaining nine by the end of 2018.

The RMG cranes have a 37.6 metre span covering six rail tracks, stacking containers 1-over-3 with a lifting height of 12.5 metres. They will be used in terminal’s railyard, which can handle double-stack container trains up to 1.5 kilometres long.

Chief executive Suresh Amirapu said: “These RMG cranes are equipped with a rotating trolley that gives the crane operator an excellent view of the containers, rail wagons and the entire working area. They also have double sided cantilevers that cover two truck lanes on either side of the crane rails. These will allow us to flexibly manage the rail operations and speed up the rail container handling.”
