Konecranes introduces ARTG system’s evolution

At a special customer event in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, Konecranes introduced the next evolution of its Automated Rubber Tired Gantry (ARTG) System, version 2.0. It can be retrofit to most brownfield container terminals. It fits most container stack envelopes. And truck handling is automated, with remote supervision.

In 2013, Konecranes was the first company in the world to introduce an Automated Rubber Tired Gantry (ARTG) System on a wide commercial scale. A number of container terminal operators are now using the system. Recently, PT Prima Terminal Petikemas, a subsidiary of state-owned port operator PT Pelabuhan Indonesia I (Persero), signed a contract with Konecranes for the delivery of an ARTG system.

The Konecranes ARTG system version 2.0 offers new advantages for operators of container terminals using RTG cranes. Foremost among these is how it can be retrofit to most brownfield container terminals. It fits most container stack envelopes because it uses space very effectively. Its truck handling concept is versatile. Truck handling is automated, with remote supervision. One remote supervisor can operate up to five ARTGs simultaneously.

Furthermore, the ARTG system version 2.0 is equipped with the latest wireless communication technology: control signals and video signals are now wireless. This means that the ARTGs can be diesel-powered, there is no need for cable reels and fiber optics.

The Konecranes ARTG system version 2.0 will be instrumental in driving the evolution of RTG-based container terminals to fully automated operation.
