Ten Konecranes Rubber Tired Gantry (RTG) cranes are now all running smoothly at Belawan International Container Terminal (BICT).
Having received five RTGs previously, BICT now operates a fleet of fifteen Konecranes RTGs.These ten RTGs are technically very similar to the ones already delivered. When they change stack, for example, their wheels rotate while turning. This feature reduces wear on the rubber tires and the container yard compared to traditional solutions, extending the lifetime of the rubber tires and yard surface.
The ten 8-wheel RTG' s can stack six plus one containers high and six containers wide plus truck lane and have a lifting capacity of 40 tons.
“We are very proud that BICT has chosen Konecranes again as its reliable partner with the latest technologies for RTG cranes,” says Jyrki Melaanvuo, Head of the Konecranes Port Crane business in the Asia-Pacific region.”
