Kalmar books STS cranes

Rotterdam Short Sea Terminal is the first customer for Kalmar STS cranes built by the Rainbow-Cargotec Industries joint venture in China. Separately, Kalmar has announced an AutoRTG deal in "Ireland"

Since its opening in 2013, Rainbow-Cargotec Industries (the joint venture of Cargotec Corporation and Jiangsu Rainbow Heavy Industries) has delivered close to 300 RTGs worldwide and all the deliveries, says Kalmar, have been on time and in budget.

For the first time, Cargotec has signed a contract for Kalmar STS cranes with Rotterdam Short Sea Terminal BV, booking two plus two on option. The order has been booked into Cargotec's Q1 2017 order intake, and the delivery of the first two cranes is planned to be completed by the end of 2018.

Kalmar will deliver widespan monobox STS cranes specifically designed for RST's short sea operation. The local Kalmar team in Rotterdam is responsible for crane erection and project oversight as well as supporting the customer when needed.

"We have had Kalmar STS cranes in our terminal for many years and they are some of the quickest in the world, allowing us to optimise our overall operational efficiency and keep service times for vessels and trucks the shortest possible", Cees van Pelt, Manager Technical Department & Projects at RST, is quoted.

"Based on the solid performance of the current Kalmar cranes and the expertise of the local Kalmar team, we are confident that these new cranes will meet our STS productivity targets and help us continue to provide reliable service to our customers."

The Kalmar STS cranes will be shipped from the recently opened new jetty in Taicang.

  • Kalmar is to extend its long-standing relationship with Dublin Ferryport Terminals (for yard handling equipment) with an order for Kalmar AutoRTG System. The order was booked in Cargotec's Q4 2016 intake and delivery is scheduled to start during Q2 this year. Scope includes fully automated stack operation and remote controlled truck handling. The plan is for DFT to start with semi-automated functions, controlled remotely, and add fully automated features in the stacking area in the future. Kalmar is also responsible for integrating the cranes to the terminal operating system. Service, maintenance and technical support will be provided by Kalmar's site-based engineering team who have a permanent presence at the terminal.
