News Story
Konecranes RTGs currently working at GCT Deltaport in Delta, British Columbia.
GCT Canada Limited Partnership has ordered 10 Konecranes rubber-tyred gantry (RTG) cranes for its terminals in British Columbia, Canada. The cranes comply with the US EPA Tier 4f standard for diesel engines.

The value of the order, signed at the beginning of February 2018, has not been disclosed.

Four of the RTG cranes will be delivered to GCT Vanterm in Vancouver in the first quarter of 2019. The remaining six cranes will be delivered to GCT Deltaport in Delta, British Columbia, also in the first quarter of 2019.

Together, the terminals already operate 12 Konecranes RTGs.  

The new cranes are eco-efficient, offering significant fuel savings and reduced emissions. They will be identical to the fleet of Konecranes RTGs already operated by GCT in British Columbia: 16-wheel machines with Active Load Control for maximum container handling productivity, a lifting capacity of 40 T, lifting 1-over-5 high and 7-plus-truck lane wide.

Unlike the current fleet, they will be equipped with features including Auto-Steering, Auto-TOS Reporting and Auto-Positioning with yard screen in the operator cabin.

GCT Canada's existing Konecranes RTG fleet will be updated with the same features.
