Oman’s Port of Salalah has taken delivery of four more RTGs to meet the operational requirements of its customers. The new stacking gantry cranes incorporate a number of features designed to make them safer, more environmentally-friendly and more reliable, with reduced downtime.
This investment is one of a number of ongoing initiatives which also includes adding 33 new tractor trailers to its fleet. Andrew Dawes, CEO of the Port of Salalah, said, “Adding these new RTGs is part of our ongoing fleet management program to ensure that we have the best operational fleet of equipment and capacity to serve the evolving needs of our
customers. These new machines demonstrate our commitment to safety, operational leadership and to run an environmentally conscious business that reduces our carbon footprint.”
The four RTGs are expected to be commissioned shortly, after the completion of operational testing and safety certifications.
