The industry knows that we have the expertise in building rail mounted container cranes and we want to fulfill the customers demand for a wider product range.

When conceptualizing the next generation of RTG crane, we at Kuenz were clear that we could not succeed if we weren’t willing to break the mold.

A New Dawn for Crane Technology

Maintenance costs and time are getting more and more vital in automated terminals, so beside the cost, the human risk is increased when people need to enter an automated terminal to tend to cranes.

Q&A: David Moosbrugger, Managing Director, Kuenz

The most dramatic evolution in recent years is the automation of terminals. This started in the ports and will now be implemented step-by-step in other areas. For example, in the intermodal yards.
