Over 90% of the Rubber Tired Gantry (RTG) cranes in the world are diesel-powered and manually operated by an onboard driver. Most are operated using traditional operating models that have not substantially changed in decades. Moving diesel-powered RTGs to a remote operation model, or a higher level of automation, has been held back by a lack of wireless communication technology that can meet operational requirements for transfer capacity, lower latency, reliability and security.

 

This White Paper describes how Konecranes developed, tested and applied wireless communication technology in order to modernise the operation of diesel-powered RTGs. Modernising, in the sense of making remote and supervised operation possible and providing a pragmatic path toward fully automated operation if desired.
