Save Fuel and Reduce Emissions

Clean Energy Power for Rubber Tired Gantry Cranes

EcoCrane Battery Hybrid System is a unique, proven solution that retrofits any existing electric RTG crane with battery-hybrid technology.

  • Retrofit any existing RTG cranes (or can be implemented as the main power source on new RTG cranes direct from the manufacturer)
  • 60-70% reduction in fuel consumption as compared with traditional RTGs
  • Allows full operational flexibility

For owners and operators of rubber tired gantry (RTG) cranes, EcoCrane Battery Hybrid System is a unique, proven solution that retrofits any existing electric RTG crane with battery-hybrid technology.  This system allows owners and operators to realize substantial cost and environmental savings, without purchasing a new crane.

How It Works

The patented system uniquely combines a small diesel engine/generator with a lithium-ion battery pack. It reduces the RTG’s traditional genset by a factor of 4 while still providing the power to operate at full performance.

How It Helps

EcoCrane replaces the large diesel engine of the RTG with a minimal ~150 horsepower diesel engine/generator that only operates to charge the battery pack.  It not only yields a significant reduction in idle time and fuel costs, but also recovers regenerative energy that would otherwise be wasted.  It also reduces noise, maintenance, and up to 99% of emissions, making it eligible for environmental and government grants.

Why Mi-Jack EcoCrane?

Mi-Jack has a unique team that has been designing and manufacturing leading-edge, high-density battery technology for more than 20 years.  Our team has designed and integrated hybrid systems for both small and large industrial applications ranging from 100kWh up to 1 MWh.

What Is Regenerative Charging?

The EcoCrane solution uses energy stored in a lithium-ion battery pack to perform functions such as propulsion, or lifting the containerized freight.  But as the load is lowered, or the crane brakes, the Li-Ion system will “recover” the built-up kinetic energy that would have previously been “wasted”.  This energy is recaptured and stored in the battery pack. This efficient re-use of energy translates into a substantial reduction in operating costs for the terminal.
