As part of its mission to support customers with more sustainable products and solutions, MacGregor has introduced a fully electrically driven heavy-duty transloading crane.
The new TCE heavy-duty transloading crane is based on the latest generation of the electric drive system and the experience of more than 580 electric cranes delivered since 2007.
MacGregor says the new crane closes the gap in its electric crane portfolio.
In combination with an energy storage system to get the maximum benefit from the regenerated power, the crane consumes approximately 60% less energy, compared to a hydraulic drive system. As a result, the CO2 emissions will be reduced by more than 5,500 T within a typical lifecycle of a hydraulic crane.
The electrical drive also increases cargo handling safety and efficiency through more precise control with superior operator comfort. Additionally, it increases the turnover capacity performance by more than 10% due to higher speed.
Other major advantages of the new MacGregor TCE crane are potential savings in capital expenditure and lower maintenance costs without the need to change oil, filters and hoses.
The TCE crane can be connected to the OnWatch Scout condition-based monitoring and predictive maintenance service, with the option to include several automation functionalities such as Auto-Grip and Auto-Drive.
