Seen But Not Heard

Konecranes has been manufacturing container crane for more than four decades. In the beginning, noise wasn't a bit issue, because the ways it affected humans were less well known and residential areas were separate to ports. However, noise pollution has become a major challenge as urban areas continue to expand across the seafront, ports have become busier, and two areas have crept closer.

2016 Update: RTG Automation

Automated container handling is a recognised megatrend in the container handling industry. It started back in the early 1990s, when the ECT Delta Terminal, Rotterdam, began to use unmanned rail mounted gantry cranes in their container yard, with considerable success. The industry noticed, and investment in new automated terminals grew. Automated container handling technology developed quickly, concentrating on the cranes handling the intermediate storage of containers in the yard

The New Era of Container Ports: The Industrial Internet

A new era is beginning in the container handling industry thanks to the rise of the Industrial Internet, the world’s hyper-connectivity, and the automation of container terminal operations. New business and operating models are being revealed that offer great opportunities. With that new risks are also being revealed. Opportunities can be exploited and risks can be minimised by building a sound IT network architecture

GREENCRANES: Testing the way to sustainability in ports

In recent years the integration of renewable energy and alternative fuels within the industrial and transport sector has been greatly encouraged.

José Andrés Giménez, research and development project manager, Valenciaport Foundation discusses the project ‘Green Technologies and Eco - Efficient Alternatives for Cranes and Operations at Port Container Terminals’ (GREENCRANES) which aims to be an innovative action which contributes to the improvement of energy efficiency of port container terminals.

The Case for Automated RTG Container Handling

Automated container handling is a recognised megatrend in the container handling industry. It started back in the early 1990s, when the ECT Delta Terminal, Rotterdam, began to use unmanned rail mounted gantry cranes in their container yard, with considerable success. The industry noticed, and investment in new automated terminals grew.
