Evaluation for Container Handling Performance with Power Peak Control on Electric RTG in Container Terminal


Container terminal acts as an important intermodal node that connects cargo sea and land transportation mode. It is an important infrastructure supporting Japan’s socioeconomic activities. Maritime container logistics faces many challenges environmental issues such as reduction of CO2 at ports and operational costs for international competition. A solution of introducing electric rubber-tired gantry (RTG) system is effective to suppress greenhouse gas emission, but there are some problems such as the increase in total amount of electrical consumption and a peak of electric consumption especially during summer. In this study, the authors construct a detail simulation model of seaside operation of container terminal with consideration of restriction of electric usage and examine the influence of electric RTG deployment system to suppress the power peak in Hakata Island City Container Terminal.
