APMT announces electrification investment for Rijeka Gateway terminal

Rijeka Gateway, a joint venture between APM Terminals (APMT) and ENNA Logic, has announced plans to install more than 60 electric container handling equipment.

This equipment includes ship-to-shore (STS) cranes, rubber-tyred gantry (RTG) cranes, and trucks.

According to APMT, the first pieces of equipment will arrive in July 2024 – with operations starting in 2025 with an annual capacity of 650,000 TEU, once the construction is complete (1.05 million TEU is planned for phases 1+2).

When the Rijeka Gateway becomes fully operational in 2025, it will mark a significant milestone in APMT’s ambitions to electrify its container handling fleet.

To address the demands at Rijeka Gateway, APMT and ENNA Logic have reportedly invested in more than 60 pieces of electric container handling equipment, implying that all significant container handling will be carried out by electric-powered assets when operations resume.

The first batch of new terminal equipment will arrive in July, along with personnel training on best practice implementation.

A total of €100 million ($108 million) will be invested on equipment for the new port, which will break ground in September 2023.

The full fleet of electrified equipment will include four STS cranes, 15 RTG cranes, two rail-mounted gantry cranes, 28 electric terminal tractors, and 14 electric vehicles (EVs).

Koen Benders, Project Director Rijeka Gateway, said: “I am proud that – with 95 per cent of our equipment value being invested in electric assets – Rijeka Gateway will be an almost fully decarbonised container terminal. We are contributing to the creation of a better world for all. We are lifting standards of responsibility, not only for Rijeka, but the whole of Croatia.”

In February, Liebherr Container Cranes announced its partnership with Rijeka Gateway, supplying the terminal in Croatia with remote control yard cranes.
