These have been delivered respectively to Huagang Container Branch and Container Service Branch under Shantou China Merchants Port Group Co Ltd. The order was booked in Cargotec’s Q1 2019 order intake.

The newly-purchased machines will be added to Shantou China Merchants Port Group’s existing Kalmar mobile equipment fleet. More than 30 Kalmar reach stackers and empty container handlers support the container handling businesses of the group and its terminals. Kalmar maintains two senior service engineers at the port service station of Shantou CMPort to support the daily operation of the terminal.

Kalmar Essential range of empty container handlers (DCU80-100) offers a choice of three different lifting capacities - 8, 9 and 10 tonnes - and four different mast heights each with different stacking capabilities. Just as with Essential reach stackers, customers can select from three driveline combinations and emissions standards compliant engines.

All Essential Range reach stackers and empty container handlers come fitted with a load sensing hydraulic system, which measures the load and applies the right amount of power to move it efficiently.

Alex Tang, Solution Sales Director, Kalmar China, said: "Since its delivery of first machine to Shantou China Merchants Port Group in 1992, Kalmar has established a stable partnership with the customer for more than 20 years. The machines that are currently being used by Shantou China Merchants Port Group cover almost every generation of Kalmar reach stackers and container handlers."

A spokesman for Shantou China Merchants Port Group said: "We are delighted to continue our long term partnership with Kalmar, as we are planning to expand our machine fleet to meet the growing business demands.

 

"Kalmar’s efficient and reliable equipment and good after-sales service and technical support are the main drivers behind our decision to choose Kalmar over the years."
