This new power option means Konecranes now provides a full range of solutions for their RTGs - Hybrid power pack, Diesel fuel saver and two electric power options, the Cable Reel and Busbar.
The Hybrid Power Pack and Diesel Fuel Saver provide the flexibility of diesel power, while the two electric options provide the benefits and convenience of electricity – no diesel, less maintenance, less noise and lower emissions.
Some of the key features of the Hybrid (diesel/electric) power pack includes:
- turn a fully-diesel RTG into a diesel/electric hybrid
- takes the energy generated during braking and converts it into electricity to recharge the batteries
- can significantly reduce fuel costs
Konecranes provides a full range of power options, as well as a full range of services for RTGs, including maintenance and retrofits.
When Konecranes modernises an RTG with a power option retrofit, the company makes sure that the power system is fully integrated with the mechanical and electrical systems. This ensures that the RTG continues to work reliably and efficiently.
