Cargotec wins significant order to supply container quay cranes for APM Terminals in Rotterdam

Cargotec has received a significant order from APM Terminals to supply eight Kalmar super quay (ship-to-shore) cranes and two Kalmar barge quay cranes to the company's Maasvlakte II expansion project.

The expansion of the port of Rotterdam, Maasvlakte 2, is Europe's largest land reclamation project. It was started in 2008 with the aim to meet the growing demand for space and to maintain Rotterdam's leading role in Europe. Due to the expansion of the existing port to a total of 12,000 hectares, the capacity for container transfer is expected to double to 34 million TEUs (TEU is one standard 20-ft container) by 2033.

Cargotec's Kalmar Monobox-type quay cranes will be operating in the new terminal area, which is currently being built directly on deep water. They are semi-automated with a 25 container reach, capable of handling twin lift as well as tandem lift with Bromma spreaders. Cranes are equipped with various additional features including second trolley and remote control, which are expected to lead to significant improvements in container handling productivity. The two barge quay cranes will have an outreach of 36m.

APM Terminals operates a network of 62 ports and terminals in 36 countries with 12 expansion programs underway. Cargotec has a longstanding partnership with APM Terminals. Kalmar quay cranes, rubber-tyred gantry cranes, shuttle and straddle carriers, reachstackers, empty container handlers and terminal tractors are deployed in various terminals throughout the world.
