The 12 #automated RTGs are cabinless, with the cranes operating automatically over the container stack.

Manual control is carried out via four Liebherr remote operator stations. The cranes feature Wi-Fi mesh network communications, a decentralised system that sees multiple access points positioned throughout the yard providing a high-speed and stable data network “delivering the required latency and high-bandwidth communication necessary for remote control”.

The contract to supply the cranes was won in 2021.

The Port of Duqm is situated in the south-east of Oman and located close to major oil and gas as well mining projects.
