DP World London Gateway Books 20 Kalmar Stacking Cranes

DP World London Gateway has returned to Kalmar and ordered 20 automatic stacking cranes for its third berth, currently under construction and expected to be operational in the second half of 2016.  

The Kalmar delivery consists of 10 ASC modules, each with two cranes. The landside operations of the container yard are fully automated with Kalmar Automated Truck Handling deployed for both road truck as well as cassette operation.

Kalmar, part of Cargotec,  had delivered 40 automatic stacking cranes, 28 shuttle carriers and two reachstackers to DP World London Gateway’s first and second berths during 2013-2014.

Simon Moore, CEO, DP World London Gateway, said: “The Berth Three announcement is a response to our customers’ needs and shows our confidence in the future. Through its partnership with us, Kalmar has delivered proven success. We remain confident in Kalmar’s ability to continue supporting us as this world class international hub port for the UK continues to grow.”
