Cargotec lands a 17-machine deal to supply Europe's leading cargo handler
April 19, 2012
Cargotec has received an order to deliver 13 Kalmar reachstackers and 4 Kalmar empty container handlers to Europe Container Terminals (ECT). The deal is supported by a five-year maintenance agreement. Cargotec’s ability to deliver total solutions with high performance, eco-friendly products and excellent service proven over a longstanding relationship were the reasons behind the deal.
The reliable and highly flexible Kalmar reachstackers make it easy for deep sea and inland terminals, including rail terminals, to handle containers with efficiency. The heavy duty DRF450-60S5 model selected by ECT boasts a capacity of 45.000kg, smooth automatic gearshift and smart operator controls.
The new equipment and service support fulfill 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, and significant reduction in emissions is achieved without affecting the capacity or level of productivity, safety and quality. Furthermore, there is no increase in service intervals or costly downtime as the system is designed to last the lifetime of the engine.
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.
The order has been booked for the first quarter of 2012, and the delivery of the new models – Kalmar DRF 450-60S5 reachstackers, Kalmar DCF 100-45E7 and DCF90-45E6 empty container handlers – is scheduled for the end of April 2012.
