Intermodal Terminals at Chullora

Konecranes Rail Mounted Gantry (RMG) cranes are the result of decades of crane design experience and performance in the field. They incorporate both recent innovations and technologies proven in millions of on-the-job working hours to provide high performance, reliability, accuracy, low operating costs and low energy consumption. We can tailor our RMGs for your specific operation. We deliver them in different sizes and configurations including zero outreach and outreach from both sides, with both rotating and non-rotating trolleys that lift all container and trailer types.

Full gantry cranes (where the load remains beneath the gantry structure, supported from a beam) are well suited to lifting massive objects such as ships’ engines, as the entire structure can resist the torque created by the load, and counterweights are generally not required. These are often found in shipyards where they are used to move large ship components together for construction. They use a complex system of cables and attachments to support the massive loads undertaken by the full gantry cranes.

Some full gantry cranes of note are Samson and Goliath and Taisun. Samson and Goliath are two full gantry cranes located in the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast have spans of 140 metres and can lift loads of up to 840 tonnes to a height of 70 metres. In 2008, the world’s strongest gantry crane, Taisun, which can lift 20,000 metric tons, was installed in Yantai, China at the Yantai Raffles Shipyard. In 2012, a 22,000-ton capacity crane, the “Honghai Crane” was planned for construction in Qidong City, China.Cite note three back to wikipedia
