Container Terminal Saint-Petersburg (CTSP) has taken delivery of two new rubber tired gantry (RTG) cranes to be used for moving and stacking containers at the terminal’s rear yards.
The cranes delivery is the last under the terminal's 2020 expansion plan. The fleet of the terminal’s container yard equipment has thus been expanded with five new Konecranes RTGs.
The cranes of 50 metric tons in capacity are able to make stacks of 5+1 containers high and 7+1 containers wide. The RTGs are fitted with DGPS Autosteering for keeping straight driving path and additional safety systems involving laser sensors as well as an operator cabin complying with the current ergonomics standards.
The new cranes will be put into operation upon installation of additional equipment (radio antennas and terminals) and upon their registration by the Federal Service for Environmental, Technological and Nuclear Supervision.
