GCT Canada has ordered a further 10 Konecranes Rubber-Tyred Gantries (RTGs) for its GCT Deltaport container terminal in Vancouver, British Columbia.
The terminal currently operates a fleet of 12 Konecranes RTGs.
The order was booked in Q2 of this year, delivery is scheduled for Q1 2024.
“When the new RTGs are working, we’ll have a high-performing fleet of 22 Konecranes RTGs to increase the velocity of cargo moving through our terminal,” said Roy Kristensen, Director of Engineering, GCT Canada.
The 10 RTGs on order are CSA-approved and equipped with Tier 4f diesel engines and Konecranes’ Diesel Fuel Saver technology.
They are also equipped with Konecranes’ Active Load Control (ALC) system.
The RTGs on order are identical to the equipment already in use at GCT Canada.
The 16-wheel machines have a lifting capacity of 40 LT, lifting 1-over-5 high and 7 plus truck lane wide.
The integration of London Gateway’s existing fleet with the new Konecranes ASCs will take place in carefully planned phases.
