Konecranes and the Georgia Ports Authority (GPA) celebrated the delivery of the 1000th Konecranes RTG with a specially painted with a “stars and stripes” design.

“Garden City is the single busiest container terminal in the United States. This star-spangled RTG is an inspiring sight here at the Port of Savannah,” said Georgia Ports Authority Executive Director Griff Lynch. “We now operate a fleet of 146 Konecranes RTGs and 22 Konecranes ship-to-shore cranes. This fleet is the linchpin of our business — the link between our road and rail connections and the most shipping services calling on any port in the U.S. Southeast.”

Tuomas Saastamoinen, Sales and Marketing Director, Konecranes, Port Cranes, added: “In 1995 we delivered our very first RTG crane to the Port of Savannah, Garden City Terminal. As we delivered more batches of cranes over the years, I appreciate how the GPA has worked closely with us to constantly improve our crane design. It feels wonderful to have delivered our 1000th RTG to the GPA in 2016, and to be celebrating that event with them. So much growth has occurred for both the GPA and Konecranes since 1995. I’m confident that we’ll keep on growing for many years to come.”
