Konecranes presents world’s first hybrid reach stacker

11.01.2013 – Konecranes is proud to introduce the world’s first hybrid reach stacker for container handling, with a lifting capacity of 45 tons. The SMV 4531 TB5 HLT features a hybrid diesel/electric driveline, an electrified hydraulic lifting system, and a super capacitor based energy storage. This innovative lift truck will cut fuel consumption and emissions while offering improved performance in terms of acceleration and lifting response to driver commands.

The new hybrid Konecranes reach stacker will offer customers substantial cost and environmental benefits. Estimated fuel consumption will be around 10 liters/hour during normal handling of fully loaded containers, significantly less than with conventional reach stackers. This is achieved by electrifying all flows of energy across the driveline, the hydraulic lifting system and the energy storage system.

“Propulsion and lifting are powered by dedicated electric motors that can all operate in regenerative mode. The energy generated from braking and load lowering is recovered and stored for later re-use. This means a reduction in diesel fuel consumption and environmental impact. Meanwhile, productivity is increased in terms of quicker response and higher acceleration,” says Anders Nilsson, Technical Director, Konecranes Lift Trucks.

The new hybrid Konecranes reach stacker has been and will continue being field-tested at the Port of Helsingborg’s container terminal. “Konecranes has become one of our business partners. We cooperate very closely. This involves continuous development of features on existing lift trucks, and we give input for the development of new models such as the new hybrid reach stacker,”says Mats Fernebrand, Service and Maintenance Manager, Port of Helsingborg.

The Port of Helsingborg, situated at the narrowest point of the sound between Sweden and Denmark. Over 350,000 TEU pass through the port every year. While cargo and passenger transport are important parts of its business, The Port of Helsingborg prides itself on being a container specialist. This is confirmed by the large number of Konecranes reach stackers that ply the dock area, seamlessly linking sea and rail transport.
