Konecranes has announced its third RTG delivery to the Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) Terminal in Valencia, Spain.
When the three RTGs on order go into operation, the MSC Terminal will operate a fleet of 18 Konecranes RTGs. The cranes will be delivered by spring 2017.
Sven Valentin, Terminal Manager of MSC Terminal Valencia, said: “Our Konecranes RTGs are central to the continuing success of this terminal. They are high-performing, reliable machines that our operators like to drive. I look forward to receiving these new cranes.”
The 16-wheel RTGs will be equipped with Konecranes’ ‘Active Load Control’, a diesel fuel saver system, GPS auto-TOS reporting and auto-positioning.
They will have a lifting capacity of 40 LT, stacking one-over-five containers high and six plus truck lane wide.
Antti Halonen, Sales Manager at Konecranes Port Cranes, said: “The first Konecranes RTGs were delivered in 2009. MSC Terminal Valencia’s confidence in us is derived from the excellent performance of our equipment and the high quality of our local service. Consistency is the key.”
