Port Houston is continuing to hybridise container handling at its Barbours Cut and Bayport operations with the addition of five Konecranes hybrid rubber-tyred gantry (RTG) cranes.

The port currently has a fleet of 116 Konecranes RTGs, of which 26 are hybrid RTGs, Konecranes says in a statement.

By early 2025, it will have 57 hybrid RTGs as a result of this order and another announced last year.

The order was booked in Q3 2023, with the cranes to be delivered at the beginning of 2025.

Konecranes vice president regional sales port solutions Jussi Suhonen says: “Konecranes RTGs are very popular in North America and it’s good to see the hybrid version populating the RTG fleet of Port Houston, which is always forward-looking, especially when it comes to eco-efficiency.”
