More Koncranes RTGs for Savannah

When these cranes are operational, the Port of Savannah will operate a total of 178 Konecranes RTGs.


GPA is the largest, fastest-growing container terminal in North America and its current fleet of 158 RTG, including 12 for delivery this year, is the largest of its kind in the USA.


Chris Novack, Senior Director of Engineering & Facilities Maintenance, GPA, commented: “The GPA is thrilled to continue our strategic partnership with the purchase of 20 additional RTGs from Konecranes. The quality of their equipment and the technical support that they provide is second to none.”

Jussi Suhonen, Regional Sales Director Americas, Konecranes Port Solutions, said: “The Savannah Harbor Expansion Project is moving ahead on schedule. The amazing growth of the Port of Savannah continues. Its positive effect on the economies of Georgia and the entire US eastern seaboard keeps growing. This port was the first to take delivery of Konecranes innovative RTG design back in 1995. When the RTGs currently on order are delivered, the port’s Konecranes RTG fleet will be 178 strong.”

The 20 RTGs on order are diesel-electric machines, with cable reel readiness for electric operation. They are high-performance, 16-wheel RTGs with a SWL of 50 tons, stacking 6 + 1/1 over 5. They will feature Konecranes Active Load Control system, which eliminates away, and autosteering. They will also be equipped with Konecranes’ Truconnect remote monitoring system.
