Meridian Port Services’ container terminal in Tema, Ghana, is currently erecting five Konecranes rubber-tire gantry cranes.
The cranes are part of an order placed in August 2012. MPS already operates four Konecranes RTGs, which were delivered fully erect in March 2013.
The electric, 16-wheel cranes have a lifting capacity of 40 tons stacking one-over-five containers high and 7+ truck lanes wide. They have container positioning systems that connect to the terminal operating system, ensuring real-time positioning and inventory, and are equipped with remote access technology that allows Konecranes experts to connect to the machines remotely.
