First Colombian container crane order for Konecranes

  • Six RTGs for Colombia’s TCBUEN

Konecranes received its first container crane order from Colombia last month, the Finnish crane manufacturer has announced.

The first order will see six rubber-tyred gantry cranes (RTGs) cranes delivered to Sociedad Portuaria Terminal de Contenedores de Buenaventura SA (TCBUEN).

“The six new Konecranes RTGs will almost double TCBUEN’s container yard capacity and significantly boost productivity,” says Kim Salvén, Konecranes’ European sales director.

The 16-wheel RTGs, equipped with Konecranes’ Active Load Control technology, have a lifting capacity of 40 tonnes and can stack one-over-six containers high, and six plus truck lane wide.

TCBUEN is part of Grup Marítim TCB SL. It started operations in Buenaventura in 2010 with seven RTGs and two ship-to-shore (STS) cranes.

The two parties have agreed not to disclose the value of the order.
