Konecranes has delivered a busbar-powered, fully electric rubber-tire gantry crane to EVYAP Port in Istanbul.
It is the first in a series of eight RTGs ordered in 2012 by the Turkish port operator.
The RTGs, also equipped with network braking, will run on electricity drawn from the local grid. They do not use hydraulics. They will be equipped with a full-size diesel generator and Konecranes Diesel Fuel Saver technology in case of electricity blackouts.
