Konecranes books 18 more RTGs for Mumbai

Konecranes has reported an order from Bharat Mumbai Container Terminals for a further 18 Konecranes Noell RTGs

Bharat Mumbai Container Terminals Pte Ltd (BMCT), a wholly owned subsidiary of PSA International Pte Ltd (PSA), exercised its option to purchase a further 18 Konecranes Noell RTGs.

The order follows upon an initial order for 18 RTGs and four RMGs that will be handed over by the end of this year. The 18 RTGs under the option just exercised will be delivered in two lots:

  • nine by August 2018
  • the remaining nine by the end of 2018.

At regime BMCT will operate a total of 36 Konecranes Noell RTGs,and four Konecranes Noell RMGs.

Shyam Pathak, Sales Director India, Konecranes, Port Solutions, said: “BMCT’s expansion plans are on track and I am pleased that this dynamic container terminal, backed by leading global port operator PSA, has again selected our crane technology.”

The RMGs will be used in BMCT’s IY, which can handle double-stack container trains up to 1.5 km long. They will be powered from the terminal’s mains and will not generate any local exhaust emissions.

Capt Suresh Amirapu, CEO of BMCT, said: “The RMGs are equipped with a rotating trolley that gives the crane operator an excellent view of the containers, rail wagons and the entire working area. They also have double-sided cantilevers that cover two truck lanes on either side of the crane rails. These will allow us to manage rail operations flexibly and speed up rail container handling.”

The RMGs have a 37.6m span covering six rail tracks. They offer a maximum lifting capacity of 65t, stacking containers 1 over 3 and with a lifting height of 12.5m.

The RTGs, with a lifting capacity of 40t, will be used in the CY, where they will stack containers 1 over 5 and 6 + 1. They are equipped with diesel gensets with variable speed engines that, says Konecranes, can reduce fuel consumption by up to one third depending upon operating conditions.

The first lot of RTGs arrived at BMCT on 22nd Sept and the RMGs on 23rd Sept 2017.
