Cargotec has received an order for 13 Kalmar reachstackers and 4 Kalmar empty container handlers from Europe Container Terminals (ECT)
The order includes a 5-year maintenance agreement for the machines.
The new equipment from Cargotec and service support fulfil ECT's high criteria. The engines in the Kalmar reachstackers 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.
Scheduled for delivery at the end of April 2012, the new models - Kalmar DRF 450-60S5 reachstackers, Kalmar DCF 100-45E7 and DCF90-45E6 empty container handlers - will be serviced at one of Cargotec's service stations.
The Kalmar reachstackers 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.
Significant reduction in emissions is achieved without affecting capacity or the level of productivity, safety and quality that Cargotec customers have come to expect. Furthermore, there is no increase in service intervals or costly downtime as the system is designed to last the lifetime of the engine.
