GCT Canada is adding RTGs
GCT Canada has ordered 10 Konecranes rubber-tyred gantry (RTG) cranes for its terminals in British Columbia. The cranes comply with the US EPA Tier 4f standard for diesel engines.

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 value of the order has not been disclosed.

The new cranes are 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. However, they will be equipped with the features Auto-Steering, Auto-TOS Reporting and Auto-Positioning.

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

"GCT has been very satisfied with the performance of our RTGs, and I'm very pleased that they will begin to use our operator-assisting features," says Heikki Kreku, project manager, Konecranes Port Cranes.

Canadian-owned and -operated with headquarters in Vancouver, GCT Canada claims to  service one out of every two containers transiting through the country. Its two state-of-the-art West Coast terminals provide customers and carriers with reliable and convenient access to all the major Asia Pacific trade lanes.
