Kalmar books OPCSA maintenance contract

The order, which comprises a Kalmar Complete Care service contract covering the terminal’s STS cranes and RTGs, was booked in Cargotec’s Q3 2019 order intake and the contract comes into effect at the start of 2020.

OPCSA operates the largest terminal in Las Palmas. In addition to the Kalmar STS and RTG cranes covered by the service contract, the company’s fleet includes Kalmar reach stackers and ECH mast trucks.

Kalmar Complete Care provides customers with preventive and corrective maintenance services according to an agreed service level, enabling better operational predictability, low operational risk and reduced equipment downtime.

Carlos Rodriguez, Technical Director, OPCSA, said: "We made the decision to consolidate our maintenance activities under one service provider in order to enhance safety, performance and productivity as well as cost efficiency. Kalmar’s track record in comprehensive maintenance provision for leading terminals speaks for itself, and it was a natural step for us to continue our relationship since we already rely on Kalmar equipment across virtually every area of our operations."

Sergio Peralta, Director, Service Operations South Europe, Kalmar, said: "OPCSA’s decision to centralise all their preventive and corrective maintenance activities to us shows the high level of trust they place in our technical capabilities, and we look forward to building an even brighter future for the terminal together."
