Baltic Hub announces RTG energy storage retrofit from Liebherr

The Baltic Hub have commissioned Liebherr Container Cranes Ltd. to retrofit a hybrid green energy storage solution on one of its Liebherr RTGs.

In particular, the retrofit sees the addition of a Liduro energy storage system along with exchanging the existing 13 L genset with a smaller 8 L genset.

According to Baltic Hub, this will allow the RTG to operate at the same speed and productivity, whilst reducing operating costs, and delivering substantial environmental benefits, including a reduction in emissions and carbon footprint.

Oran Kane, Liebherr’s Container Cranes head of department for Upgrades and Modifications, commented, "Baltic Hub, like many ports and terminals worldwide are working to minimise their impact on the environment, through reducing their carbon footprint."

He added, "The green energy solution that they have chosen, not only makes a significant reduction in the amount of energy consumed and the amount of emissions released, but the return on investment is clear to see, with the retrofit paying for itself in the short term."

Τhe RTG crane will have access to reliable, high-power energy during peak demand periods. The system is modular and depends on the operational requirements of
the port, single or multiple units may be installed to a single RTG.
