Rubber Tyred Gantry Cranes

Efficiencies for African Ports that can’t be Ignored.

Ports across Central and West Africa are increasing their efficiency and capacity by switching to RTGs. We have amassed a wealth of experience in delivering, commissioning and servicing RTGs in West and Central Africa. We currently have permanent crane engineering teams based in Tema, Ghana; Lome, Togo and Apapa, Nigeria servicing fleets of RTGs. We currently service a fleet of 150 RTGs throughout West and Central Africa. The Konecranes RTG has been non-hydraulic since 1995, making for dramatic cost saving and less frequent maintenance.

  • Increases terminal capacity by up to 25% from lift trucks
  • Engine options that can handle high-sulphur fuels
  • Full electric versions also available as in our LCT project
  • The 16-wheel model has less load bearing than traditional 8-wheel models, making it appropriate for brown-field terminal development
  • Intelligent structure for excellent stability and improved duty cycle
  • DGPS container positioning system stores the exact location of every single container
  • Advanced crane management system for quick trouble shooting and performance monitoring
Extensive range of operator assistance aides that can also be retro-fitted
  1. Anti-truck lift
  2. Stacked profiling
  3. Front and back-mounted cameras
  4. Anti-sway technology
  5. TRUCONNECT: Konecranes proprietary remote monitoring software
