Kalmar delivers reachstackers to Dutch terminal operator Ter Haak

Cargotec division Kalmar delivered eco reachstackers to Dutch terminal operator Ter Haak Group to help improve the sustainability of operations.

Cargotec division Kalmar delivered eco reachstackers to Dutch terminal operator Ter Haak Group to help improve the sustainability of operations.

The company delivered one Kalmar Gloria Reachstacker and three empty container handlers to Ter Haak’s Container Stevedoring IJmuiden (CSY) and Container Service Amsterdam (CSA) terminals.

Ter Haak Group CEO Richard Ter Haak said: “Continuously improving the eco-efficiency of our operations through investment in modern, fuel-efficient equipment is a major focus for us.

“In this regard, the solutions offered by Kalmar matched our needs perfectly. We have been working with Kalmar equipment for several years and appreciate its high quality and reliability.”

Established more than 24 years ago, Ter Haak’s CSA deep-sea terminal handles a range of cargo, including containers, ConRo and RoRo vessels, as well as breakbulk.

Kalmar has delivered three empty container handlers and three eco reachstackers, including a full-service contract to increase its capacity and eco-efficiency.

“We have been working with Kalmar equipment for several years and appreciate its high quality and reliability.”

For CSY, Kalmar delivered a specially adapted Kalmar Gloria reachstacker for loading and unloading cargo from barges.

A four-deep reach of the machine eliminates the need to turn the vessel when unloading the last row of cargo.

Kalmar eco reachstacker is guaranteed to use significantly less fuel compared to others and is capable of reducing fuel consumption by up to 40%.

It also reduces fuel costs and emissions, while matching the productivity levels of machines with larger engines.

Kalmar secured a contract last month to supply six zero-emission rubber-tired gantry cranes (RTGs) to South Florida Container Terminal (SFCT) in the US.
