Hutchison Ports Thailand Receives Two New Remote Control Electric RTG Cranes

Hutchison Ports Thailand Receives Two New Remote Control Electric RTG Cranes

Hutchison Ports Thailand (HPT) has taken delivery of two new remote control electric rubber tyred gantry cranes (RC eRTGC) from Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industry Co., Ltd. (ZPMC) on the MV. DA KANG.

The new delivery follows the recent delivery of three remote control quay cranes (RC QC) units and eight RC eRTGC units on January 12, 2018. This latest delivery brings the total RC eRTGCs to ten units total now that can handle six high container stacking in the container yard.

The new equipment most notably features remote control technology, a first for container terminals in Thailand. The RC eRTGCs are the first RTGCs of their type to be delivered to a Hutchison Ports container terminal globally – a significant milestone for Thailand and the Hutchison Ports group.

The investment into new equipment is just one part of HPT’s overall strategy for expansion in Thailand. The equipment will be put to good use at the terminal operator’s new Terminal D facility at Laem Chabang Port, which when completed will become an integral part of the government’s infrastructure plans for the Eastern Economic Corridor. The new terminal will bring HPT’s total capacity in excess of 6 million TEUs, cementing their place as the largest terminal operator in Thailand.

Upon full completion of all phases of Terminal D, the facility will operate a total of 1,700 meters of berth with a total of 17 quay cranes and 43 rubber tyred gantry cranes using remote control technology. It will be one of the largest remote control operated terminals in the world. This level of investment in infrastructure, equipment and technology reflects both the Hutchison Ports Group’s commitment to Thailand and Laem Chabang Port and its desire to transform Hutchison Ports Thailand into one of the Group’s flagship terminals.
