Norfolk Southern Corporations selects Konecranes hybrid RTGs

Konecranes has been selected by US Norfolk Southern Corporation (NSC), a transportation company in the United States, to provide five hybrid rubber-tired gantry cranes (RTGs) for intermodal operations in the Chicago area. The order was booked in December 2019.

Konecranes says its hybrid RTGs are equipped with a battery pack and Tier iV final genset for very eco-efficient operation.

Alan Garcia, Sales Manager Americas, Konecranes Port Solutions, said: “This is a substantial vote of confidence from Norfolk Southern in our RTG technology. We will ensure that Norfolk Southern is entirely satisfied with the performance of these state-of-the-art hybrid RTGs and how we support them.”

“Konecranes was awarded the business because of the technical capabilities of their RTGs, and because of feedback received from current Konecranes customers regarding the quality and service support they’ve received,” noted Brandon Smith, AVP Customer Operations at Norfolk Southern.
