South Carolina Ports to Add 26 RTG Cranes
South Carolina Ports Authority (SCPA) said it will purchase 26 new rubber-tired gantry (RTG) cranes to handle growing container volumes at the Wando Welch Terminal and Inland Port Greer.
The port will pay $46.4 million for the 26 RTG cranes to be built by manufacturer Konecrane.
The contract, which was announced at its monthly board of directors meeting Wednesday, includes 24 new RTGs for the Wando Welch Terminal to support SCPA's plans to modernize operations and increase container yard capacity of its existing terminal facilities.
The other two new cranes will be installed at Inland Port Greer to support continued volume growth of the facility.
