Cargotec's Kalmar has secured an order for 15 Kalmar E-One² rubber-tyred gantry (RTG) cranes from Bolivariana de Puertos (Bolipuertos), S.A through construction contractor Teixeira Duarte, part of the consortium Consorcio TD-Mota-Proyecto Puerto de la Guaira, in Venezuela.

The deal follows an order for Kalmar port equipment received earlier in March from Bolipuertos. The equipment of this latest order is destined to be delivered to Bolipuerto's La Guaira location during the first half of 2014. The value of the order is approximately EUR 20 million.

Purchased along with an extensive stock of spare parts, the 41-tonne capacity RTG cranes have a lift height of 1 over 5 and a span of 6 + 1 for excellent productivity. The order includes also Kalmar SmartPort process automation solution SmartRail providing automated gantry steering for rubber tyred gantry cranes, and SmartFleet, which helps maintenance operations to more effectively support terminal equipment. Kalmar will also be conducting specialist training for the customer's operators and maintenance personnel.
