CSP orders 11 Konecranes RTGs for its Spanish terminals
COSCO SHIPPING Ports (Spain) Terminals (CSP), has ordered a total of eleven Konecranes eco-firendly hybrid RTGs, with a €20 million price tag.
Konecranes noted that six machines will be delivered to CSP’s terminal in Bilbao and five for their terminal in Valncia. The order supports CSP Spain’s sustainability efforts and boosts productivity at the terminals.
The cranes’ hybrid drives allow for an up to 50 percent reduction in diesel fuel consumption compared to conventional RTGs. In addition, the safety and ergonomics of the cranes will be supported by Konecranes smart features.
“This order underscores the strength of our RTG offering and we are proud to support CSP Spain in their commitment to increase eco-efficiency and productivity”, said Darryn Scheepers, Sales Manager EMEA, Port Solutions, Konecranes.
A strong focus on customers and a commitment to business growth and continuous improvement make Konecranes a lifting industry leader. This is underpinned by investments in digitalisation and technology, plus Konecranes’ work to make material flows more efficient with solutions that decarbonise the economy and advance circularity and safety.
The order for eleven RTG’s gollows an order from Terminal Del Golfo (TDG), which is part of the Mediterranean logistics Tarros Group, for a Generation 6 Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbour Crane. It will be used at the TDG, container and multipurpose terminal, in La Spezia, in the northwest of Italy, to increase both productivity and sustainability. It is the terminal’s first Generation 6 mobile harbour crane and can handle containers, general cargo and heavy project cargo.
