Lifting solutions provider Konecranes has reached an agreement with Luka Koper, the operator of the Port of Koper in Slovenia, to deliver five electric rubber-tyred gantry cranes (RTGs).
The cranes, which are to be equipped with cable reels and an auto plug-in system, are set to be delivered in the summer of 2019.
The electric-powered equipment features regenerative power feedback to a local grid, LED lighting, and has low levels of noise.
In addition, the cranes will also have Konecranes’ driver-assistance features such as Auto-steering, Auto-TOS reporting, Auto-positioning, and Stack Collision Prevention.
Antti Halonen, Sales Manager of Konecranes Port Solutions, commented: “Luka Koper has been our customer for over fourteen years. I’m happy that our relationship with them continues to be strong.
“Koper has granted Konecranes its Investment Supplier of the Year award, for the second year in a row. It’s an honor to receive this vote of confidence in our container handling equipment and how we support Luka Koper in its business.”
Edvin Boskin, Technical Manager of Luka Koper, said: “Starting in 2004, Luka Koper acquired over 20 Konecranes RTGs over 15 years of strong collaboration that allowed us to build a trusting relationship. It was a good decision to choose Konecranes as our crane supplier.
“Koper’s strategy is concentrated on the port, which will remain a multi-purpose port with a market position that we will strengthen steadily while reducing our environmental impact on our neighborhood.”
