Luka Koper recently unveiled the new rail-mounted gantry (RMG) crane rails at its container terminal, the latest improvement to the terminal that will see $248.31 million in investments by 2020.
During the presentation, Luka Koper’s
business partners viewed the new cranes in operation, seeing first-hand how the
new crane models will improve productivity. The cranes will offer both faster
and increased loading/unloading. The RMG cranes allow for more efficiency and
for the port to load and unload five train sets at once. The new crane lane is
a total of 2,427.82 feet long, and its construction required the container
terminal’s warehousing blocks to be relocated. The crane lane construction is
part of a long-term overhaul of the container terminal.
"Luka Koper already holds one of the
largest shares in the modal split, namely 60 percent and maintains the leading
position in the Adriatic region in this segment,” Luka Koper Management
Board President Dragomir Matic said in a press release. “Last year, we dispatched 22,879 trains, which
is 7.6 percent more than in the previous year. Only at the container terminal,
we register on average 24 arrivals and departures of block trains per day and
these trains connect Koper with all industrial centers of Central Europe.”
