New Equipment Arrives at DCT Gdansk

Konecranes has received a major order for 15 Rubber Tired Gantry (RTG) cranes from a new customer, DCT Gdansk S.A. The cranes are scheduled to be delivered during the second half of 2016.

DCT Gdansk is Poland’s largest and fastest-growing container facility, and the only deep-water terminal in the Baltic Sea region having direct ocean vessel calls from the Far East. The terminal handles Polish import and export, transshipment and transit.

The Konecranes RTG cranes on order for DCT Gdansk are high-performance, 16-wheel RTGs with a lifting capacity of 40.6 tons, a stacking height of 1-over-5, and a stacking width of 7 plus truck lane wide. They are all-electric RTGs powered by a cable reel system.

Mr Maciek Kwiatkowski, CEO of DCT Gdansk, commented: “This is an important purchase for us and our evaluation process was very rigorous.”

The new era for DCT opened in May 2011, when the facility started handling the Maersk Line’s E-type class container vessels with the capacity of 15,500 TEU, the world’s largest container ships at that time. In 2012, the container terminal handled its second millionth TEU since the operations kick-off, and closed the year with yet another annual volume record of approximately 900,000 TEU.

In August 2013 DCT Gdansk serviced its first Triple E class vessel, Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller, in its maiden voyage. In 2013 the container terminal handled more than 1,150,000 TEU.

This record has permanently put DCT on the map of the world’s major container terminals and ensured its position as the biggest container terminal in terms of volume in the Baltic area.
