RTG cranes arrive at Port of Gävle

The new container terminal will be equipped with electrically powered gantry cranes that will not only contribute to lower carbon dioxide emissions and noise levels but will also increase productivity at the terminal. As the cranes stack six containers at a height, they contribute to more efficient container handling. The cranes will be remotely controlled from office desks ant to some extent automated, and do not have a cabin.

The gantry cranes will be a complement to the quay cranes that will arrive later this spring. For maximum efficiency when handling containers in the new container terminal, six electrically powered automatic RTG machines (Rubber Tyred Gantry cranes) have been ordered. With there high stacking capacity and excellent manoeuvrability, RTGs are the smartest possible combination with the upcoming cranes.
