PSA Panama receives three Konecranes RTGs


Konecranes has delivered three Rubber-Tyred Gantry (RTG) cranes to PSA Panama.

This is the first order from PSA Panama for Konecranes.

The RTG cranes add to the terminal’s existing container handling equipment fleet, now comprising 12 RTGs and 12 Rail-Mounted Gantry (RMG) cranes which handle the terminal’s increasing container traffic.

The new RTGs are diesel-electric and equipped with Konecranes’ Diesel Fuel Saver technology and the Auto-Steering and Stack Collision Prevention smart features.

Remote monitoring from American mobile virtual network operator, TruConnect, is also included.

The RTGs will stack containers up to five containers high and six container rows wide plus a truck lane.
