Konecranes to supply new terminal in Kazakhstan with RMG cranes

Eurotransit Group of Companies in Kazakhstan has ordered two Konecranes Rail-Mounted Gantry (RMG) cranes for its new intermodal terminal, which is under construction, in Dostyk, a town near the border with China.

The order was booked in August and the cranes, which will transship containers on trains running between Kazakhstan and China, are estimated to be delivered to the port by the end of 2022.

"We have very demanding environmental requirements, as we often have to deal with strong winds and very low temperatures and we also had very demanding requirements for container handling productivity and reliability, stated Erlan Dikhanbaev, Director of Eurotransit.

"Konecranes convinced us with their reliable technology and service support. The RMGs are central to our ambitious growth plans," he added.

The Konecranes RMGs on order will have a rail span of 32 meters and will serve six train tracks, lifting containers one-over-two, according to the Finnish manufacturer. Additinally, they will be equipped with an intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) with extra visibility provided by video cameras on the spreader and under the trolley.

Last but not least, the cranes will dispose of Konecranes Differential GPS Skew Control System, as well as Auto-positioning and Auto-TOS Reporting features.
