Konecranes has received an order for five rubber-tyred gantry (RTG) cranes from Termont Montréal Inc., a container terminal operator at the Port of Montréal, Canada.

The cranes will be delivered in the second half of 2016.

Located at a strategic point where the Saint Lawrence River narrows upon its approach to the Great Lakes, the Port of Montréal is an important gateway to the industrial heartland of North America.

Termont Montréal Inc. is one of two container terminal operators at the port.

Seeking to improve container handling productivity and reliability, it has ordered the five new 16-wheel RTGs equipped with Konecranes' Active Load Control system.

The cranes will have a lifting capacity of 60 T, stacking 1-over-6 containers high and six rows plus truck lane wide.

All will be equipped with Autosteering (a driver-assist feature which keeps the crane on a pre-programmed, straight path) and stack collision prevention.

Julien Dubreuil, general manager of Termont Montréal Inc., says: "We selected Konecranes RTGs at the conclusion of a thorough evaluation process covering every aspect of RTG performance, operation, maintenance and support. We are confident that we made the right decision, and look forward to receiving the cranes."

The value of the order has not been disclosed.
