Konecranes has signed a contract with Georgia Ports Authority, in the US, for four super post-Panamax ship-to-shore (STS) container cranes and 15 all-electric rubber-tyred-gantry cranes (RTGs).

Delivery of the machines, worth more than USD50 million, starts in the northern hemisphere spring of 2007 to the Garden City Terminal at the Port of Savannah, Georgia. Delivery will be completed in April 2008.

The STS cranes have a 65-ton lifting capacity and can handle ships of post Panamax size or 22 containers-wide container ships. The cranes, equipped with Konecranes' new generation AC drive system, have an outreach of 61 metres.

The 16-wheel all-electric RTGs have a 50-ton lifting capacity and can stack containers one-over-five high and six-plus truck lanes wide. Konecranes claims to hold 20 per cent of the global market for 16-wheel RTGs.

Konecranes has delivered 11 STS cranes and 31 RTGs to Georgia Ports Authority.
