Eurotransit Group of Companies (Eurotransit) in Kazakhstan has ordered two Konecranes Rail-Mounted Gantry (RMG) cranes for its new intermodal terminal under construction in Dostyk, near the border with China. The order was booked in August 2021 and the cranes will be delivered in Q4 2022.
In addition to the intermodal terminal under construction, Eurotransit operates a terminal in Altynkol, Kazakhstan. The two Konecranes RMGs on order will transship containers on trains running between Kazakhstan and China.
Mr Erlan Dikhanbaev, Director of Eurotransit, said: “The Konecranes RMGs are central to our ambitious growth plans. We have very demanding environmental requirements – we often have to deal with strong winds and very low temperatures. We also had very demanding requirements for container handling productivity and reliability. Konecranes convinced us with their reliable technology and service support.”
The Konecranes RMGs on order will have a railspan of 32 m and will serve 6 train tracks, lifting containers 1-over-2. They will be equipped with an intuitive GUI, with extra visibility provided by video cameras on the spreader and under the trolley. They will also be equipped with the Konecranes DGPS Skew Control System, and the smart features Auto-positioning and Auto-TOS Reporting.
A strong focus on customers and commitment to business growth and continuous improvement make Konecranes a lifting industry leader. This is underpinned by investments in digitalization and technology, plus our work to make material flows more efficient with solutions that decarbonize the economy and advance circularity and safety.
