In recent days, a new Rail-Mounted Gantry has been installed on the sidings of the Container terminal – October 1, 2020 This new piece of equipment will further increase productivity levels on train operations. The four RMGs can operate on five terminal sidings simultaneously, covering the whole 700 meters of length. We have been using such type of RMGs since 2017. Koper Container terminal has one
of the highest railway modal splits in Europe, with 52 % of the containers transported by train. More than 25 logistic and industrial centres across Central and Eastern Europe are served from Koper. Every day we handle from 24 to 28 trainsets and the new achievement, together with other investments, is bringing the capacity to 32 trains daily. Each RMG weighs 300 tons and is electrically powered, which allows quiet operation and no direct gas emissions. It is also equipped with advanced crane operator assistance systems for improved safety and comfort. Source: Luka Koper
