PSA Halifax orders eight electric cranes from Konecranes

PSA Halifax has signed an agreement with the Finnish port equipment manufacturer Konecranes for eight new electric Rubber Tyred Gantry cranes (E-RTGs) for its Atlantic Hub terminal.

The new E-RTGs will arrive by the second quarter of 2024 and will increase the Atlantic Hub Terminal’s total RTG fleet from nine to 17.

According to PSA Halifax, this purchase will expand the terminal’s handling capacity by 25% and is part of PSA’s efforts to electrify its equipment, which will help the company meet its sustainability and decarbonisation targets.

The new E-RTGs will replace the existing fleet of diesel FELs and RS in order to transform the Atlantic Hub into an all-electric RTG operating facility.

"Volumes at PSA’s Atlantic Hub have grown rapidly over the last three years. The new E-RTGs will allow us to densify our container yard and increase our total terminal handling capacity in Halifax by over 25% while bringing us closer to achieving our sustainability goals," commented Jan Van Mossevelde, chief executive officer of PSA Halifax.
