REMOTE control operations of rubber-tyre gantry cranes (RTGC) have achieved noticeable results in terms of operational efficiency and safety since their introduction at Hongkong International Terminals (HIT) Terminal 9 North early this year, the company announced.

'The overall number of equipment accidents dropped 53 per cent, of which the number of accidents involving RTGC dropped 64 per cent compared to last year before the launch of remote operations. No injury case recorded for all equipment accidents,' said HIT.



Remote operations are safe and reliable, said the company statement. Each crane is equipped with 58 monitoring cameras and sensors, which can assist the crane operator to handle the loading and unloading of containers from multiple angles and ensure full precision.



In addition, the engineering team carries out detailed inspection for each remote RTGC once every four weeks. With the implementation of a remote monitoring system, the engineers are also able to identify and fix the faults timely to ensure the safe operation of remote-controlled cranes, HIT said.
