Kalmar books 15 RTGs for DP World Nhava Sheva

The order, which also includes 24 months of on-site maintenance support, was booked in Cargotec’s 2019 Q2 order intake, with delivery scheduled to be completed during Q4 2020.

 

NSICT was India’s first public-private partnership project and is part of the country’s largest port, Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT), which handles 40% of India’s total maritime trade.

 

"The Kalmar Classic RTG combines the best of diesel and electric technology for fuel savings, low emissions and easy maintenance. At 1,000 hours, it has one of the longest maintenance intervals in the industry, while its modular design makes it easy to tailor to customer requirements," stated Kalmar.

 

The units delivered to Nhava Sheva will be equipped with a Variable Speed Generator (VSG), which enables greater fuel economy and lower emissions by automatically optimising RPM according to the required power. Depending on the amount of "idling" time, VSGs can cut fuel consumption by up to 25%.

 

Eduardo Prat, Vice President, Sales, Kalmar Automation Solutions: “We are delighted to announce this order from DP World, a partner with whom we have a long-standing and highly successful relationship. Furthermore, this order is a reflection of the skill and dedication of our local service team in India, whose unparalleled knowledge of RTG technology will ensure that we can continue to provide NSICT with world-class service and support.”

 

Separately, Kalmar has won a contract supply European intermodal operator Lineas Intermodal with two hybrid straddle carriers. The 4-high, 40 ton SWL machines will be delivered to Lineas Intermodal’s "Main Hub" terminal in Antwerp North in early 2020. The company’s equipment fleet already includes four Kalmar straddle carriers.

 

Lineas Intermodal was formerly known as IFB (Inter-Ferry Boats) and is part of Lineas Group, formerly B-Logistics (SNCB Fret).
