Two Kalmar rubber-tyred gantry cranes (RTGs) with hybrid drivelines will help a container terminal in Argentina reduce emissions and protect the environment.

Delivery of the RTGs to Exolgan S.A. container terminal in Buenos Aires is scheduled for late 2020. The Kalmar Hybrid RTG combines the latest lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery technology with a reduced size fuel efficient diesel power unit. The power unit is used to charge the Li-ion batteries, which power all the lifting and driving operations. The RTG is designed to deliver savings in fuel efficiency, airborne and noise emissions, and maintenance costs.

Alexandre Esse, manager, sales, ports & terminals, Americas, Kalmar: “Our Hybrid RTGs are highly fuel-efficient and they make no compromises on performance or sustainability. It is great to be able to continue our fruitful cooperation with Exolgan with this latest order, which further demonstrates the confidence that customers have in our hybrid technologies.”

The order follows the delivery of four hybrid RTGs to the terminal in December.

The Exolgan terminal in Buenos Aires is a container-handling port terminal with strategic road, rail and river transport connections.

Exolgan Container Terminal is owned by International Trade Logistics (ITL), which is part of the PSA Group, one of the leading global port groups and TIL, one of the largest diverse container terminal operators.
