Konecranes has recently received an order for four Rubber Tyred Gantry (RTG) cranes from GCT Canada Limited Partnership for its GCT Deltaport facility located in Port Metro Vancouver, Canada.
Destined for the country’s flagship container terminal, this will be Konecranes’ first RTG delivery to the West Coast of Canada.
The CSA-approved, hydraulics-free Konecranes RTGs on order are 16-wheel machines with a lifting capacity of one-over-five high of containers.

Eric Waltz, President of GCT Canada, said: “After extensive investigation of RTG suppliers and configurations, Konecranes’ 16-wheel RTGs were selected. We believe the solution offers our operations the optimal balance of safety, performance, and quality to best service our customers.”
Each Konecranes RTG will have a crane management system (CMS) that will be linked with a Remote CMS system in GCT Deltaport’s central maintenance building.
Jussi Suhonen, Sales Director, Region Americas, Konecranes/Port Cranes, said: “This order is a clear sign that our relationship with Global Container Terminals is deepening.”
The cranes will be delivered fully-erect in the spring of 2016.
