The Finnish company will supply 10 US EPA Tier 4f-compliant diesel rubber tyred gantry (RTG) cranes to GCT's two terminals in British Columbia.
The new machinery will be identical to the fleet of Konecranes 12 RTGs already operated by GCT: the 16-wheel machines with 40t of lifting capacity that are able to lift 1-over-5 and 7-plus-truck lane wide.
The new RTGs will be equipped with the features Auto-Steering, Auto-TOS Reporting, and Auto-Positioning with yard screen in the operator's cabin. GCT Canada's existing Konecranes RTG fleet will be updated with the same features.
The new gantries will be delivered in Q1 2019. Six will be deployed at GCT Deltaport in Delta and the remaining four at GCT Vanterm in Vancouver.
