Six new hybrid rubber-tired gantry cranes (RTGs) powered by Corvus Energy to be installed in Waigaoqiao Terminal, Shanghai
Corvus Energy announced it will provide the battery systems for an additional six new integrated hybrid solutions for new rubber-tired gantry cranes (RTGs) that will be produced by integrator CCCC Shanghai Equipment Engineering (CCCCSEE) for Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industry Co. Ltd. (ZPMC) and installed in Waigaoqiao Terminal, Shanghai.
CCCCSEE is leading the shift towards green technology in China’s largest port by integrating diesel-battery hybrid RTG technology. This latest order of six Corvus ESSs for hybrid RTGs follows two previous orders for the same systems installed in Shanghai last year. Cranes equipped in this manner operate at optimal efficiency with decreased fuel consumption, reduced emissions and lower operating costs due to reduced maintenance, Corvus Energy said.
Unlike conventional diesel electric port cranes, the hybrid version from CCCCSEE is powered primarily from the Corvus Energy Storage System (ESS) resulting in fuel savings of up to 65 percent with the added benefits of lower operating costs, lower greenhouse gas emissions and reduced noise levels at the terminal.
