Vietnamese port orders Konecranes equipment

Konecranes has won another order from Ben Nghe Port in Vietnam for two BOXHUNTER RTG (Rubber Tired Gantry) cranes, for delivery in cooperation with Telin Group JSC in April of 2021.

Ben Nghe Port, which is centrally located on the Saigon River in Ho Chi Minh City and serves both domestic and international container traffic, has been operating two BOXHUNTER RTGs since 2017.

Konecranes claims that the BOXHUNTER RTG is ready for the future with a modern operating concept that puts the operator down in a cabin at the truck lane, close to the truck loading and unloading action.

Ben Nghe’s new BOXHUNTERs will be fully-electric 16-wheel machines, powered by cable reel like its current BOXHUNTERs. They will stack 1-over-5 containers high with an operating width of six containers plus truck lane. In addition, they will be equipped with GPS-based auto-steering and TRUCONNECT® remote technical support.
