Konecranes to deliver 12 more Automated Stacking Cranes (ASCs) to the container terminal at Khalifa Port, Abu Dhabi.

Following upon the successful delivery of a complete automated container yard system including 30 Automated Stacking Cranes (ASCs) to the new Khalifa Port, Konecranes will deliver a further 12 ASCs to the port, which officially started commercial operations on 1 September 2012.  Deliveries will take place in Q4 2013 and Q1 2014. The parties have agreed not to disclose the value of the order. 

The 12 ASCs in the extension order are identical to the 30 ASCs delivered in the first phase. They have a lifting capacity of 40 tons, stacking one-over-five containers high and nine wide. They are equipped with automation controls and Konecranes’ Active Load Control (ALC) system. which combines advanced sway control and horizontal fine positioning, providing very efficient container handling in the ASC yard, both automatically and remotely. This is especially true in the transfer areas and inside the stack, where placement tolerances are always present. The Konecranes ASC s will be interfaced with the Khalifa Port Terminal Operating System (TOS), delivered by Konecranes in the first phase of the container terminal construction.

A supplier of automated container yard systems is judged both on the performance of its technology and its ability to deliver and commission the equipment within the flow of the total project. “I am proud of our ability to consistently deliver automated container handling systems on time, with high quality,” says Jussi Suhonen, General Manager, RMG Cranes, Konecranes. “Our growing list of automation references speaks for itself. With each delivery, we gain strength and expertise. This extension order granted to us by ADPC is proof of their confidence in us.”
