New RTG cranes for Klaipeda

Based in Vilinius, Lithuania, JSC Mobile Heavy Machinery (MHM) is part of the Alwark Group, and involved in the sale, rental and maintenance of new and used port cranes (including STS, RMGs RTGs and mobile harbour cranes). It has recently handled the delivery and hand over of two new RTGs to Klaipeda Container Terminal (KCT), with four more to follow by the autumn of 2019.

The cranes are 16-wheel machines with Konecranes Active Load Control (ALC) system and an anti-collision system. Mykolas Baciuska general manager of MHM said the cranes are significantly more productive and safer than older cranes at KCT, as well as being easier to operate thanks to the load control system and their vastly a larger cabin, with 60% more glass area.

 

They are also much higher, with a height of 21m to stack containers one-over-six, which compared to the existing one-over-four machines increases storage capacity by 50%. The operators are assisted with views from 6 cameras, and the cranes are able to be converted to automated machines in the future.

 

KCT CEO Vaidotas Sileika said the new RTGs are welcome addition as KCT grows strongly. In 2018 KCT handled 4.9 mt of cargo, exceeding the previous year’s record by 21%. “All major container lines boosted their volumes generating 371 262 TEU of annual container throughput, which is the best ever result in KCT history. The new RTG’s will increase container storage capacity and will improve container handling efficiency,” Sileika said.

 

“Our client Klaipeda Container Terminal (KCT) is very satisfied with the performance of RTG cranes and we are pleased to be the part of this significant investment project in Lithuania,” concluded Mykolas Baciuska from MHM.
