Kalmar wins large order for automatic stacking cranes from ECT in the
CARGOTEC CORPORATION, PRESS RELEASE, 5 FEBRUARY 2013 AT 1 P.M. (EET)
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 programme, which aims at further modernising 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.
