Caption : The 6 Rubber Tyre Gantry cranes (RTGs) is the first consignment of the fleet of 15 units which would be deployed as the yard cranes at Vallarpadam Container terminal at Kochi in Kerala. These have been manufactured by TGPC at Abu Dhabi at a cost of 1.7 million dollars a piece and transported in fully assembled condition. The offloading of the cranes would be a roll off operation from the barge after removal of the sea fastening. These RTGs are one of the new generation cranes, manufactured by TGPC and the first Eco friendly units being rolled out from their unit. The RTGs are claimed to be 30% more energy efficient as compared to the conventional RTGs. The source of power to the cranes is by means of a Diesel Gen-set mounted on the crane and the drive controls through the latest systems of drives and PLCs developed by Siemens. These cranes also incorporate a very high standard of safety and reliability. There has been a substantial improvement in the design as compared to the earlier design. These cranes are also fitted with sensors to detect pedestrians and obstacles on the track and prevent crane movement. The Crane management system provides all essential data for fault detection, maintenance and operational data. Photo: K_K_Mustafah 17/05/2010
