Kalmar has announced a contract with Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional (CSN), which operates port facilities including the Sepetiba Tecon container terminal at Port of Itaguaí, Brazil, for the supply of nine RTGs.
The cranes will be delivered to Sepetiba Tecon, some 80 kilometres from the city of Rio Janeiro in Q1 2022. The order was booked in Cargotec’s Q4 order intake and includes Kalmar SmartPort operator assistance .
