Puerto Coronel claims electric "first"

Puerto Coronel has acquired three e50L FLTs, with a lift capacity of 5 tonnes, from German manufacturer Kion, through its Chilean sales and service partner Linde High Lift. Javier Anwandter, the port’s general manager [in the centre of the picture on the left] says there are plans to double the fleet to six by the end this year. It will also test battery-powered 7 tonners from Linde in due course.

The e-trucks will be used for various handling duties in the port, mainly consolidating wood and pulp paper shipments and loading them in containers.


Linde e50L FLTs are equipped with lithium-ion batteries and, in normal operating conditions, the charge lasts up to 8 hours, with recharging taking no more than 3-hours, which is much faster than lead-acid batteries.


They are rated at 5 tonnes @ 500mm load centre and travel speed is 18 kph with or without load.
