Nine Kalmar Electric Cranes for Piraeus Container Terminal

Nine Kalmar Electric Cranes for Piraeus Container Terminal

Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has signed a repeat order for nine all-electric rubber-tyred gantry cranes (RTGs) with Piraeus Container Terminal (PCT) S.A. in Greece, a wholly-owned subsidiary of COSCO Pacific Limited.

The cranes, four of which are the world’s widest, will help the port meet its twin goals of increasing both capacity and savings. The deliveries are scheduled for 2015.

Li Jianchun, Deputy General Manager of PCT, said: “We currently operate Kalmar RTGs, straddle carriers, reachstackers, forklift trucks, empty container handlers and terminal tractors. The latest Kalmar E-One2 Zero Emission RTGs go beyond regular stacking capacity, with four of the units 10+1 wide and five 9+1 wide, which will help us maximise space utilisation in the container yard.”

The order follows the delivery of 12 Zero Emission Kalmar RTGs to the terminal in 2013.

The Kalmar E-One2 RTG has a 41-ton SWL capacity. The electric power system eliminates all emissions, engine noise and the need for hydraulic oils. It also helps the model achieve a maintenance interval of 1,000 hours.
