Konecranes has won another order from Ben Nghe Port in Vietnam for two Boxhunter RTG cranes.
The cranes will be delivered in cooperation with Telin Group JSC in April of 2021 and the order was booked in March 2020.
Ben Nghe Port has been operating two Konecranes Boxhunter RTGs since 2017, and the cranes have been instrumental in the port’s growth. Ben Nghe is centrally located on the Saigon River in Ho Chi Minh City, and serves both domestic and international container traffic.
Dang Hoai Giang, Chairman of the Board of Ben Nghe Port, said: “The Boxhunter RTG has met our expectations and we look forward to receiving two more and putting them into service. Konecranes has supported us well. Acquiring two more Boxhunter was an easy decision.”
Jerry Fann, Sales Director China and Southeast Asia, Konecranes Port Solutions, said: “The popularity of the Boxhunter RTG is growing throughout the world and I’m honored that Ben Nghe Port has decided to purchase more of these innovative RTGs from us.”
The Boxhunter RTG is ready for the future with a modern operating concept that puts the operator down in a cabin at the truck lane, close to the truck loading and unloading action, according to the company.
Ben Nghe’s new Boxhunters will be fully-electric 16-wheel machines, powered by cable reel like its current BOXHUNTERs. They will stack 1-over-5 containers high with an operating width of 6 containers plus truck lane. They will be equipped with GPS-based auto-steering and TRUCONNECT® remote technical support.
Powered by Ecolifting is Konecranes’ vision to reduce the footprint and increase the handprint of equipment for container terminals. From eco-optimizing diesel drives to hybridization and fully-electrified fleets, we will continue to do more with less.
