News & Insights

Cutting fuel consumption, emissions and noise with the latest evolution in hybrid RTG technology

As the drive to improve environmental performance at container terminals continues to gather pace, operators are faced with several choices when it comes to expanding or renewing their rubber-tyred gantry (RTG) crane fleets in order to achieve sustainability gains. Hybrid RTG drivelines have developed significantly in recent years, offering even greater gains in fuel efficiency and reductions in emissions and noise. Kalmar is now proud to introduce its second-generation hybrid RTG – a highly fuel-efficient machine that makes no compromises on performance.  

Busting the myth of container terminal overcapacity

The container terminals of the last decades were built for a familiar world, designed to serve a rapidly growing industry with many shipping line customers, established shipping patterns and well-understood dynamics. Terminal operators were in a controlling position, as they owned the all-important capacity and location that were essential for the shipping lines. Demands from customers were not that high, and were more focused on available handling capacity than on performance and service. 

The quest for customer optimisation

After almost two decades in the vanguard of improving efficiency, visibility and customer service in the shipping industry, Guenter Schmidmeir has set his sights on optimising Kalmar’s relationships with terminal operators.

Converting to AutoRTG – the next step towards improving performance

Increasing the automation level of operations is recognised as the next step towards improving performance at today’s container terminals. Automating an existing rubber-tyred gantry crane (RTG) terminal is a large-scale project that requires deep expertise, careful planning, a capacity for wide-ranging systems integration and the ability to consider numerous factors beyond the technical implementation. Stepwise approach can help in converting the terminal to automated operation.

Outstanding system design makes terminals safer

Thanks to meticulous and innovative system design, there is no trade-off  between safety and high productivity in Kalmar’s equipment and systems.
