Kalmar has secured a deal from Deepwater Container Terminal (DCT) Gdansk situated at the Port of Gdynia in Poland to provide three of its electrically powered rail-mounted gantry (RMG) cranes with DCT-specific customisation.

The deal follows an order placed by DCT for five rubber-tyred gantry cranes (RTGs) in the first quarter of this year.

Delivery of the new RMGs is expected to be carried out in the second half of next year.

Kalmar Intelligent Crane Solutions vice-president lkka Annala said: “We listened carefully to what the customer needed and offered them a customised solution that helps DCT accomplish their productivity targets in their intermodal operations.”

DCT Gdansk’s new RMG cranes will have a lifting capacity of 41t and rail span of 32m each.

Representing an investment programme currently going on at the Port of Gdynia to modernise the rail infrastructure at the port, the new RMG cranes will be deployed to service trains in the new rail section of DCT Gdansk.

To be powered by a cable-reel system, the cranes will feature one cantilever, as well as room for two lanes for trucks and containers.

“We found that Kalmar has responded well to market demands and can provide equipment that meets our exacting requirements.”

The cranes will also feature a Kalmar SmartFleet process automation solution with an RMG map view, and Kalmar SmartWeight for certified container weighing that will be integrated with the terminal’s existing Navis N4 terminal operating system (TOS).

DCT Gdansk CEO Cameron Thorpe said: “Rail connections in Poland, as in other European countries, are becoming increasingly important, especially in the context of sustainable, intermodal transport solutions.

“We found that Kalmar has responded well to market demands and can provide equipment that meets our exacting requirements.

“The three new electrically powered Kalmar RMGs will significantly boost our handling capacity and help us deliver an efficient, dependable rail gateway for our customers in Central and Eastern Europe.”

DCT Gdansk, the only deep-water terminal in the Baltic Sea region with direct ocean vessel calls from the Far East, currently has an annual throughput capacity of three million twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs).

Spreading across an area of 74ha, the terminal is equipped with a number of Post-Panamax and Super-Post-Panamax ship-to-shore cranes, as well as RTGs.tec.com
