In February 2017, Konecranes signed an agreement with the Gold Bond Group Ltd (Conterm) in Israel for the supply of two BOXHUNTER Rubber Tired Gantry (RTG) cranes to Conterm’s logistics center in Ashdod. The cranes will be delivered at the end of 2017. The parties involved have agreed not to disclose the value of the deal.
Conterm’s Ashdod logistics center is a terminal equipped with facilities providing a variety of storage and handling services for cargo of all types, including containers. The terminal is an important import-export link for trade in Israel.
The Konecranes BOXHUNTER RTG is an ideal machine for the Ashdod facility, given its flexible needs including loading trucks and trains while providing a mix of short and long-term logistics services to a wide variety of customers.
BOXHUNTER is quick to learn and easy to drive. The operator sits in an ergonomic heads-up position in a cabin down at the truck lane, climbing in and out of the cabin in seconds, seeing all the container action down low. When driving the crane, the operator has excellent visibility everywhere needed, thanks to the advanced video and laser technology of the BOXHUNTER operating concept.
The BOXHUNTER RTGs on order will stack 1-over-6 containers high and 7 containers wide plus truck lane, with a lifting capacity of 40.6 t. They will be fully electric, driven by a cable reel system.
