Longstanding Konecranes’ customer GCT Canada has ordered 10 Konecranes RTGs for its GCT Deltaport container terminal in Vancouver, British Columbia. The terminal currently operates a fleet of 12 Konecranes RTGs. The new cranes will be delivered in Q1 2024. The order was booked in Q2 of this year.
“When the new RTGs are working, we’ll have a high-performing fleet of 22 Konecranes RTGs to increase the velocity of cargo moving through our terminal,” said Roy Kristensen, Director of Engineering, GCT Canada. The 10 Konecranes RTGs on order are CSA-approved and equipped with Tier 4f diesel engines and Konecranes’ Diesel Fuel Saver technology. They are also equipped with Konecranes’ Active Load Control (ALC) system, which eliminates container sway in the hands of the terminal’s skilled crane operators.
The RTGs on order are identical to those GCT Canada already has: 16-wheel machines with a lifting capacity of 40 LT, lifting 1-over-5 high and 7 + truck lane wide. Ari Rämö, Sales Manager, Port Solutions, Konecranes said: “It has been rewarding to see GCT Canada growing steadily as they carry out their mission on Canada’s west coast. Konecranes is here to support their growth plans and ambitions.”
A strong focus on customers and a commitment to business growth and continuous improvement make Konecranes a lifting industry leader. This is underpinned by investments in digitalization and technology, plus our work to make material flows more efficient with solutions that decarbonize the economy and advance circularity and safety.
