Lomé Container Terminal (LCT) in Togo, West Africa, has ordered five Rubber-Tyred Gantry (RTG) cranes from Konecranes.

The machinery on order is identical to those already operating within the terminal with the cranes fully electric, powered by busbars while also featuring anti-sway software provided by the DynAPilot system.

“LCT is a customer of long-standing and I’m proud that LCT continues to trust our company and our technology,” said Antoine Bosquet, VP of Regional Sales EMEA at Konecranes Port Solutions.

“When these new cranes are delivered and commissioned, LCT will operate a fleet of 32 Konecranes RTGs. Today there are over 200 Konecranes RTGs at work across West Africa.”

The order for the new equipment was booked in June 2021 and is scheduled to be delivered in the second half of 2022.

Konecranes has also supplied its RTGs to Gemadept-Terminal Link CaiMep Terminal JSC (Gemalink) in Vietnam. The terminal ordered six of the 16-wheel machines in June 2021 and are scheduled to be delivered by July 2022.
