Lomé Container Terminal orders five new Konecranes RTG cranes

The lifting equipment manufacturer, Konecranes has secured a new order for five Rubber-Tired Gantry (RTG) cranes from Lomé Container Terminal (LCT) S.A. in Togo, which is part of Terminal Investment Limited (TiL).

The order was booked in June and is expected to be delivered to the West African terminal during the second half of 2022.

The RTG cranes are 16-wheel machines lifting containers one-over-six, seven containers wide plus truck lane, with container anti-sway provided by the Dynapilot system. Additionally, they are also fully electric and equipped with Auto-steering and Stack Collision Prevention features.

In particular, Konecranes said auto-steering, based in Differential Global Positioning System (DGPS), keeps the RTG on a pre-programmed, straight drive path, while Stack Collision Prevention helps the crane operator to prevent container collisions and knock-downs when a container is moved in the bay direction.

"LCT is a customer of long-standing" noted the Vice President of Regional Sales EMEA, Konecranes Port Solutions, Antoine Bosquet, who added that when these new cranes are delivered and commissioned, LCT will operate a fleet of 32 Konecranes RTG.
