Konecranes recently delivered three Konecranes Rubber Tired Gantry (RTG) cranes to Luka Koper in Slovenia. Ordered in January of this year and delivered on time, these 16-wheel RTGs feature Konecranes’ Active Load Control technology for superior container handling performance.
“Luka Koper is satisfied with our delivery performance, and we are pleased to support their continuing growth,” says Antti Halonen, Sales Manager, Port Cranes. “Our business relationship goes back some 10 years, covering grab unloaders, RTGs, STS cranes and reach stackers. This RTG delivery expands Koper’s fleet of Konecranes RTGs to thirteen.”
These cranes are the first 16-wheel RTG cranes in the port and they come with Konecranes’ advanced Active Load Control system, which significantly improves container handling performance. They have a lifting capacity of 40 tons and can lift one over five containers high and seven plus truck lane wide. They are equipped with technology for remote monitoring, predictive maintenance and remote support. They are also equipped with Konecranes Fuel Saver technology, which reduces fuel consumption significantly by eliminating high-speed idling. It also reduces noise and emissions.
The cranes are also equipped with the latest DGPS-assisted technology for container yards. This includes the Autosteering feature, which keeps the crane on a pre-programmed straight driving path, thus improving safety and increasing productivity. The cranes have a container positioning system that is connected to the port’s terminal operating system, ensuring correct, real-time container positioning and inventory accuracy. Container handling efficiency is further increased by the Autostop feature, which assists the driver by automatically stopping the crane in the correct position for the target container or slot.
