Konecranes has won an order for 6 Konecranes Noell Rubber-Tired Gantry (RTG) cranes from Gemadept-Terminal Link CaiMep Terminal JSC (“Gemalink”) in Vietnam. The order, which was booked in June 2021, will be handed over to Gemalink by July 2022.
The Chairman of Gemalink, Mr Do Cong Khanh, said: “Gemalink Port is operating smoothly with Konecranes container handling equipment. We received 18 Konecranes Noell RTGs in 2020 and early 2021. All of them have been performing well. When the new RTGs go into operation, we will operate a fleet of 24 Konecranes Noell RTGs.”
The Konecranes Noell RTGs on order are 16-wheel machines lifting containers 1-over-5, 7 container rows wide plus truck lane. They will be fully electric machines, equipped with cable reels for zero local emissions.
They will also be equipped with a number of Smart Features. Auto-steering will keep the RTGs on a pre-programmed, straight driving path. Stack Collision Prevention will help operators to lift, lower and place containers with a high degree of accuracy and safety.
Auto-TOS Reporting will inform the TOS about every container movement in the yard in real-time so that the TOS can keep the inventory up-to-date. A Remote Crane Management System (RCMS) will also be included. In addition to the RTGs, Gemalink also uses Konecranes reach stackers and forklift trucks.
