Cargotec has received an order to deliver 13 Kalmar reach stackers and 4 Kalmar empty container handlers to Europe Container Terminals (ECT), supported by a five-year maintenance agreement. The order has been booked for the first quarter of 2012.

Cargotec secured the deal owing to the solution it could deliver with eco-friendly products and service proven over a longstanding relationship. Scheduled for delivery at the end of April, 2012, the new models - Kalmar DRF 450-60S5 reach stackers, Kalmar DCF 100-45E7 and DCF90-45E6 empty container handlers - will be serviced at one of Cargotec's service stations.

The new equipment from Cargotec and service support fulfill ECT's high criteria. The engines in the Kalmar reach stackers enable the customer to comply with the current emission legislation without sacrificing performance or fuel efficiency. The equipment will be used at the inland terminals of ECT.

The Kalmar reach stackers are fitted with the latest Volvo diesel engines, which use Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology to deliver near-zero NOx and harmful particulate emissions. This achieves compliance with the 2011 EU stage 3B and EPA Tier 4i emission regulations, set for all off-road equipment powered by engines of 129kW and above.
