In July 2013 Konecranes received an order for eight Rubber Tired Gantry (RTG) cranes from Bolloré Group. The cranes will be delivered to container terminals operated by Bolloré Africa Logistics in Pointe Noire, Congo, and in Douala, Cameroon in the second half of 2014. The parties have agreed not to disclose the value of the order.

“Our cooperation with Bolloré goes back to 2007, when Bolloré purchased its first RTG for Abidjan Terminal in Ivory Coast. We have delivered 35 RTGs to container terminals operated by Bolloré Group in West Africa, and we are very proud to get this new order which will bring the total to 43,” says Antoine Bosquet, Konecranes’ Sales Director, Port Cranes, region IMEA. “Africa is a growing market for Bolloré and Konecranes."

The eight RTG cranes will be equipped with the new Konecranes smarter cabin offering improved ergonomics, visibility and safety. They will also have advanced Konecranes technology such as Autosteering, which keeps the crane on a pre-programmed, straight driving path, and Variable Speed Engine and Diesel Fuel Saver technology. Taken together, these features help to improve operating safety and increase productivity.

The RTG container positioning systems will be connected to the ports’ Terminal Operating Systems ensuring correct, real-time container positioning and an accurate inventory. The RTG cranes will also be equipped with remote access technology, enabling remote diagnostics for maintenance purposes.

The hydraulic-free, 16-wheel RTGs have a lifting capacity of 40 tons stacking 1-over-5 containers high and 7 plus truck lane wide.
