- Business & Finance
Finnish port automation solutions provider Kalmar has signed a second repeat order for additional nine all-electric rubber-tyred gantry cranes (ERTGs) with Piraeus Container Terminal (PCT) S.A. in Greece, a wholly-owned subsidiary of COSCO Pacific Limited.
The deliveries are scheduled for 2016. Kalmar’s previous deliveries to the terminal consisted of 12 ERTGs in 2013 and nine ERTGs in 2015.
“These latest Kalmar E-One2 Zero Emission RTGs will be working in the Pier III expansion area, helping us to enhance capacity in the yard,” Li Jianchun, Deputy General Manager of PCT, said.
”The ERTGs apply new technologies that enhance productivity, reliability and flexibility, which we consider to be tremendous achievements. The cranes will be manufactured at Rainbow-Cargotec Industries like the previous ones delivered by Kalmar.”
The company has also signed an order with Singapore-based terminal operator PSA International for seven further desks to operate their latest fleet of 11 Kalmar E-One² RTGs delivered earlier this year to PSA Sines Container Terminal in Portugal.
