Conductix-Wampfler electrifies RTG container cranes for APM Terminals

06.06.2011 – Conductix-Wampfler AG has concluded a Global Frame Agreement with the major container terminal operator APM Terminals.  Conductix-Wampfler AG is the primary contracter in converting the majority of APM Terminals’s 400 RTG fleet to electric operation in twelve of its container terminals.  The respective contracts were signed at the APM Terminals headquarters in The Hague on 1 March and the first conversion projects will take place at terminals in the Asia / Pacific region.

With the Conductix-Wampfler E-RTG systems, the electrification of cranes can be carried out via drive-in operation, plug-in operation or by motorized cable reels.  When changing stacks, the drive-in system enables the crane to connect with the conductor rail automatically thus reducing the time taken to plug in and out.

The conversion to E-RTGs enables APM Terminals to reduce fuel consumption and CO2-emissions. Diesel-driven RTGs often consume more than half of the total energy at a port, and can correspondingly emit more than half of the total emissions.  Therefore, converting to an electric system could incur sizeable economic and environmentally beneficial results.

“I see this agreement as an appreciation of our engineering services in the field of crane electrification – I think, we can be proud of this”, declared Daniel Dörflinger, CEO of Conductix-Wampfler AG.
