Konecranes Delivers RTG to Turkey

In March 2013, Konecranes delivered its first busbar-powered, fully-electric RTG to Turkey.

The customer is EVYAP Port in Istanbul. This RTG is part of an order, received last year from EVYAP Port, for eight fully-electric Rubber Tired Gantry (RTG) cranes.

EVYAP Port is a forward-thinking port operator that is investing in energy-saving solutions and emphasizing eco-efficient technology in its operations. The container terminal serves the Anatolian side of Istanbul and the regional economy of Kocaeli with its TEU capacity of 615,000.

EVYAP Port selected Konecranes to be its RTG provider due to the eco-efficiency, reliability and high quality of the cranes as well as Konecranes’ excellent reputation in the container terminal business and strong references.

The busbar-powered Konecranes RTG, also equipped with network braking, will reduce energy consumption by up to 60% and reduce local emissions by up to 95%. All of the busbar RTGs will run on electricity drawn from the local grid. They do not use hydraulics. They will be equipped with a full-size diesel generator and Konecranes Diesel Fuel Saver technology in case of electricity blackouts.
