Konecranes has successfully delivered six RTG (Rubber Tired Gantry) cranes to container terminal operator TCP Paranagua in Brazil.
This was Konecranes’ third RTG delivery to TCP, who now has sixteen Konecranes RTGs in their fleet.
“The new RTGs were taken into production by TCP Paranagua at the beginning of May 2012. They will provide much-needed additional capacity,” says Kim Salvén, Sales Manager, Konecranes Port Cranes, responsible for South America. “This third delivery shows that the cooperation between Konecranes and TCP is in very good shape.”
The new RTGs will increase TCP’s container handling capacity by more than 30%. The 16-wheel RTGs are equipped with Konecranes Active Load Control, fuel saver technology and crane management system, ensuring safe and uninterrupted use of the cranes. They have a lifting capacity of 40 tons and can stack one over five containers high, and six plus truck lane wide.
