Cargotec Oyj : Cargotec's Kalmar gains another large port equipment order from
CARGOTEC CORPORATION, STOCK EXCHANGE RELEASE, 25 MARCH 2013 AT 1:00 P.M. (EET)
Cargotec's Kalmar has secured a large 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.
Ingo Erhardt, Vice President, Head of South America at Kalmar said: "This is
another important order for Kalmar in Venezuela within a short period of time.
I am very proud of the trusted relationship we have built with our customers
and the continued success we have delivered in the market throughout the
years. In 2012 we invited key people from Bolipuertos to visit various
terminals in Brazil where Kalmar equipment was in operation. Our customer had
the opportunity to conduct a thorough comparison and concluded that Kalmar
RTGs provided the best solution to meet their operational needs."
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.
