The order was booked in Cargotec’s third quarter 2018 order intake, with delivery of the machines scheduled to take place through the first quarter of 2019.


The Tecon Santos container terminal terminal is operated by Santos Brasil Participações S.A., and is one of the larger terminals in South America, with an annual handling capacity of 2M TEU. “Kalmar equipment forms the backbone of the Tecon Santos fleet, which includes Kalmar rubber-tyred gantry cranes (RTGs), empty container handlers and terminal tractors. The new Kalmar Ottawa T2 terminal tractors form part of the terminal’s fleet expansion programme, initiated to address the significant growth in demand seen in the past year,” Kalmar noted.


First launched in 2014, The Ottawa T2 is Kalmar’s flagship machine for the Americas. A European version was launched in 2015.

Marlos Silva Tavares, Director de Operações da Santos Brasil, Tecon Santos, said Kalmar was the driving seat to win its latest order. "Since Kalmar equipment already makes up such a large proportion of our existing fleet, it was natural that we turned to them once again to support us with our extensive fleet expansion programme. We have seen demand rise sharply during 2018, handling 2.9% more containers in the first half of the year compared to the same period in 2017. The new terminal tractors will be instrumental in helping us address this growth and ensuring our operations can continue to run smoothly and efficiently."

Marcelo Massa, Solution Sales Manager, Kalmar added: "The Kalmar Ottawa T2 is highly appreciated by customers all around the world for its ability to ensure safe and efficient trailer spotting in terminal environments. We are delighted to be able to continue our long and successful partnership with Tecon Santos with this latest order, which demonstrates the high regard in which they hold the technical capabilities and reliability of our machines."
