Rubber tire gantry (RTG) cranes

Hybrid diesel/electric power option for rubber tire gantry cranes

To reduce fuel consumption by more than 60%, a new hybrid option is offered for a line of rubber tire gantry (RTG) cranes from Konecranes.

Other fuel options include diesel and electric (cable reel and busbar models). In the hybrid model, when possible, the crane is operated with electrical power.

The power system takes the energy generated during braking and converts it into electricity to recharge the batteries. The diesel model provides power-on-demand, matching the rpms of the engine to the work the machine is doing. This ensures that the engine is running at maximum efficiency without high-speed idling to reduce fuel consumption.
