Kalmar Industries has received an order from JSC Sea Port St Petersburg, Russia, for 24 machines for delivery from May to September this year. The order comprises 12 forklift trucks with lifting capacities ranging from 10 to 32 tonnes, eight TRX182 terminal tractors, three reachstackers and one empty container handler. JSC Sea Port St Petersburg handled 11.8 million tons of cargoes in 2006, comprising metals, coal, chemical, timber and containers. The terminal operator has worked with Kalmar for more than 30 years. At present, it relies on more than 80 Kalmar machines to perform day-to-day handling duties. These include forklift trucks with handling capacities of up to 42 tonnes, reachstackers and terminal tractors. The latest forklift trucks on order will replace some older equipment and will be used for handling steel, aluminium products and containers. The remaining equipment will be largely engaged in handling the growing number of containers at the port.
