RTG Electrification: the benefits really add up.
Converting to electrically-powered RTGs from a diesel power unit with our electrification partner Stemmann Technik, will give you substantial cost savings, plus environmental benefits that will help you meet the rigorous emissions and environmental standards that are becoming a more significant part of everyday business life.
It will also breathe new life into your existing RTG fleet, and electrification of your equipment is the first step when considering automated terminal solutions. You just need to choose which electrification solution is right for you; conductor lines or cable reels.
Why a cable reel system?
With a cable reel system you could benefit from a smaller yard size overall as cable reel systems don’t need a fixed conductor line, which results in fewer fixed structures. This system gives you more flexibility when extending your stack length and the cables are also capable of carrying high-speed data for remote monitoring and future automation.
Why a conductor line system?
Conductor line conversions are ideal when you need to move your cranes regularly between container blocks. Conductor lines allow for the easy addition or removal of RTGs on the same block, make it easy to change the lanes being used and allow for easy access at the stack ends. These cables are also capable of carrying high-speed data for remote monitoring and future automation.
