SOUTH Pacific International Container Terminal (SPICT) in Lae, Papua New Guinea, and member of International Container Terminal Services Inc (ICTSI), has received three new hybrid rubber tyred gantries (RTGs).

The equipment delivery places SPICT ahead of its 2022 commitments and 50 per cent above the initial agreed outlay on operational efficiency improvements, a company statement noted.



With a lifting capacity of 41 tons, the RTGs, running on diesel and electric power, are expected to be start operations later this month. The 16-wheel cable reel RTGs can stack one over five containers high and six containers wide, including truck roadway.



They include a number of safety and productivity enhancing features such as: active load control, which prevents load sway and provides micro-motions in both trolley and gantry directions; auto-steering with container positioning interfaced to the terminal operating system; stack collision prevention; a truck guiding system; and a truck trailer anti-lifting system.



ICTSI South Pacific has invested in three mobile harbour cranes for its Lae terminal, and there are presently six Papua New Guinean crane operators, three of whom are female, currently training at ICTSI's Manila flagship as part of efforts to further enhance the performance of equipment operators.



'We are very proud of this order. It is the result of our commitment to innovation and proven performance around the world and it will further strengthen our presence in Papua New Guinea,' said chief executive officer Anil Singh.



'Technology is a central part of our terminal operations and investment is being placed in training to grow competency and skills because it is people who drive the technology.'
