Konecranes supplies twelve RTGs tp Lomé container terminal in Togo

16.07.2012 – In June 2012, Konecranes received an order for twelve Rubber Tired Gantry (RTG) cranes from Lomé Container Terminal (LCT) in Lomé, Togo.  The parties have agreed not to disclose the value of the order.

In 2008, Lomé Container Terminal, one of investment company Terminal Investment Limited container terminal projects, was awarded a 35 year concession by the Government of Togo to develop, construct and operate a greenfield container terminal within the Port of Lomé in Togo. Upon completion, the terminal is expected to have an estimated handling capacity of up to 1.5 million TEUs.

“LCT is an ambitious project, and we are proud to be part of it,” says Antoine Bosquet, Konecranes’ Sales Director, Port Cranes. “After the delivery to LCT, Konecranes will have 48 RTGs in operation in West Africa.”

The RTG cranes will be equipped with the new Konecranes cabin, offering improved ergonomics and visibility. They will also be equipped with the latest DGPS-assisted technology for container yards including the RTG container positioning system, which is connected to the port’s terminal operating system ensuring correct, real-time container positioning and an accurate inventory. The Auto-steering feature keeps the crane on a pre-programmed, straight driving path, thus improving safety and increasing productivity.

Furthermore, the cranes will be equipped with a Busbar power connection, which converts the RTGs to fully electric and quiet operation. The power is supplied by electrified conductor rails that provide the physical contact. This eliminates local emission.

The 16-wheel RTGs have a lifting capacity of 40 tons stacking 1-over-6 containers high and 7 plus truck lane wide. The RTG cranes will also be equipped with remote access technology, enabling remote diagnostics and the related in-depth expertise and maintenance services.
