Kalmar Wins Large Order

Press Release
Tuesday, February 05, 2013

Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has signed an order for 11 automatic stacking cranes with Europe Container Terminals (ECT) in the Netherlands.

 

The order is part of ECT's investment program, which aims at further modernizing its Delta Terminal at Maasvlakte in Rotterdam. The cranes will be delivered during 2014 and they will replace part of the existing automatic stacking cranes that have been in operation since the early 1990s. The order has been booked into Cargotec's 2013 first quarter order intake.


"This order builds on the long-term partnership between the companies as well as on the decades of Kalmar automated container handling expertise. The crane design has evolved a lot over the years and the latest models will be fitted with the most advanced technological solutions, electrical system and design features that will make the cranes even more reliable, productive and environmentally friendly," says Rene Kleiss, Vice President at Kalmar.


ECT Delta Terminal is the first fully automated terminal in the world. Over the past 25 years Kalmar and Nelcon, a company acquired by Kalmar in 2001, have delivered over 100 automatic stacking cranes to ECT.
