Kalmar Secures Large Order

Press Release
Tuesday, January 15, 2013

Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has signed a large order for twelve all-electric rubber tyred gantry cranes (RTGs) to Piraeus Container Terminal (PCT) SA in Greece.

 

The cranes, scheduled for delivery in late 2013, will facilitate the port's continued expansion, with capacities planned to increase from 2.6 MTEU to 3.1 MTEU per year. The order has been booked into Cargotec's 2012 fourth quarter order intake.

 
PCT, operating in Greece since 2009, is a wholly-owned subsidiary of COSCO Pacific Limited, a world-leading container terminal operator. This latest order further consolidates Kalmar's long term partnership with the terminal, as Mr. Li, Deputy General Manager of PCT confirmed: "Once we install the 12 RTGs from Kalmar, the stacking capacity of our terminal will increase by 30%, and we believe that our terminal will achieve reduced operating costs with increasing throughputs, by turning to the advanced technological solutions Kalmar has consistently delivered, ultimately gaining higher reputation."

"We currently operate with Kalmar straddle carriers, reachstackers, forklift trucks, empty container handlers and terminal tractors. The latest Kalmar E-One2 Zero Emission RTGs, fitted with SmartRail, an automatic gantry steering system, offer an exceptional solution to our stringent requirements for higher capacity, reduced carbon emissions, lower costs of ownership and safer operation around the yard. The Kalmar E-One2 Zero Emission RTG applies new technologies without compromising container terminal productivity, reliability or flexibility, which we consider to be tremendous achievements," Mr. Li concluded.

 
The Kalmar E-One2 RTGs have each a 41 ton SWL capacity and also benefit from zero emissions, through incorporating a cable reel which provides an electric power system that eliminates all diesel emissions, engine noise and the use of hydraulic oils.
