Ten Konecranes Rubber Tired Gantry (RTG) cranes delivered to Ports and Cargo Handling Services (PCHS) Ltd. in Lagos

PCHS, the port operations arm of the Nigerian Sifax Group, is a major player in port operations and related services in West Africa.

The RTGs were ordered at the end of last year and delivered on time to the company’s terminal in Tin Can Island Port and are equipped with the new Konecranes cabin offering improved ergonomics and visibility.

The RTGs are also equipped with the latest DGPS-assisted technology for container yards including Autosteering. This feature keeps the RTG on a pre-programmed, straight driving path without driver intervention, improving safety and increasing productivity. A container positioning system is also included. It is connected to the port’s terminal operating system ensuring correct, real-time container positioning and an accurate inventory. The all-electric, 16-wheel RTGs have a lifting capacity of 50 tons stacking 1-over-5 containers high and 7 plus truck lane wide.

Sifax Group is satisfied with our delivery performance, and we are pleased to support their business growth with our RTG technology and delivery professionalism,” says Antoine Bosquet, Konecranes Sales Director, Port Cranes, region WEMEA.
