Konecranes delives RTGs for new container terminal in Colombia

Konecranes to deliver eight RTGs for new container terminal in Colombia

Konecranes will deliver eight Rubber-Tyred Gantry (RTG) cranes to a new container terminal at Puerto Antioquia, Colombia.

The new equipment aims to provide new export and import power for the regional economy of Antioquia and Colombia as a whole.

The order was booked in August 2023.

The eight RTGs were ordered by Puerto Bahia Colombia de Uraba, whose key shareholder is the CMA CGM Group.

They are fully electric, powered by cable reels connected to the local grid.

“Konecranes’ Ecolifting effort in the form of these electric, cable reel RTGs is a good fit with the CMA CGM Group’s ambition to accelerate the decarbonisation of port terminals on its path to reach Net Zero carbon by 2050 for all its operations,” said Neil Clegg, Sales Manager, Konecranes, Port Solutions.

“The new RTGs will contribute to the successful launch of operations at the new Colombian container terminal.”

More recently, Port Houston in Texas ordered five Konecranes hybrid Rubber-Tyred Gantry (RTGs) cranes for its Barbours Cut Container Terminal.
