VAHLE electrifies Mexican terminal
VAHLE, the mobile power and data solutions company, has completed the electrification of the intermodal area at the Lázaro Cárdenas Terminal (LCT) in Mexico.
VAHLE was awarded the first contract to electrify ten container blocks of the terminal back in 2011. The power expert was also contracted to supply eight automatic systems to ZPMC for new eRTGs.
At present, LCT has so far electrified 26 container blocks with 5.512 m conductor rails and 16 new eRTGs from ZPMC.
VAHLE has so far converted three conventional RTGs to eRTGs as part of the turn-key project and more will follow.
The electrification project will eventually result in the electrification of the whole intermodal area (over 500m) which will be operated by eRTGs powered with VAHLE automatic systems.
The project has many benefits to the terminal operator, not least keeping the mobile yard cranes flexible. Depending on the daily business requirements, up to four eRTGs will be able to enter the intermodal area to handle containers at a time.
VAHLE’s product range consists of power supply, positioning and data communication systems which can be upgraded step by step to allow for the future demand of automation.
The Mexican container terminal Lázaro Cárdenas Terminal Portuaria de Contenedores is located in North America at the pacific side of Mexico.
