Kalmar to deliver nine machines to DP World Lirquen in Chile
Kalmar has concluded an agreement to supply DP World Lirquen terminal in Chile with a total of nine Kalmar mobile machines: two Kalmar G generation reachstackers, one Kalmar U generation reachstacker for handling laden containers, and six Kalmar Ottawa T2 terminal tractors. The order was booked in Cargotec’s 2020 Q3 order intake, with delivery scheduled to be staggered through Q4 of 2020.
DP World now operates at five terminals west coast of South America in Posorja, Ecuador, Callao and Paita in Peru and San Antonio and Lirquen in Chile.
The reachstackers feature different cabins: the Kalmar Gloria reachstackers have Kalmar’s ergonomic EGO cabin with 360-degree visibility, intuitive controls, and advanced diagnostics. The U generation Kalmar reachstacker (pictured) has a Spirit Delta Cabin.
The units supplied to Lirquen terminal will incorporate a soft landing and noise dampening system to reduce the noise while handling containers. Safety features include the Pedestrian Detection System and a Fire Suppression System, which can automatically detect and extinguish vehicle fires in seconds, increasing the safety of personnel and equipment alike.
Kalmar noted that all nine machines “will be fitted with the required hardware to enable them to be connected to Kalmar Insight – a performance management tool for cargo handling operations that turns data into actionable, impactful insights”.
Eduardo Prat, Vice President, Latin America at Kalmar, said: “Kalmar and DP World have developed an extremely productive relationship over the years, so we are delighted to be able to continue to support their operations with a complete range of solutions and services.for safe and efficient operations across DP World terminals worldwide.”
