Cargotec has won an order from Europe Container Terminals (ECT) in Rotterdam, the Netherlands to deliver 13 Kalmar reachstackers and four empty container handlers supported by a five-year maintenance agreement.

Under the deal, Cargotec will supply the new models – Kalmar DRF 450-60S5 reachstackers, Kalmar DCF 100-45E7 and DCF90-45E6 empty container handlers.

ECT will use the equipment at the inland terminals, which is scheduled to be delivered by the end of this month and will be serviced at one of Cargotec’s service stations.

Cargotec’s new equipment and service support will fulfil ECT’s requirement by providing new facilities, up-to-date information and communication technologies.

The Kalmar reachstackers are equipped with the latest Volvo diesel engines which use selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology to deliver near-zero NOx and harmful particulate emissions, and allow the customer to comply with the current emission legislation.

According to the company, the engines equipped on Kalmar reachstackers will achieve compliance with the 2011 EU stage 3B and EPA Tier 4i emission regulations set for all off-road equipment powered by engines of 129kW and above.

Cargotec’s Kalmar reachstackers make it easy to handle containers with efficiency for deepsea and inland terminals, including rail terminals.

The heavy duty DRF450-60S5 model selected by ECT increases a capacity of 45,000kg, smooth automatic gearshift and smart operator controls.

Separately the company has also won a €10m contract from an unnamed Chinese shipyard to deliver twenty 120-tonne MacGregor GLH cargo handling cranes for ten general cargo vessels.

The company said that the MacGregor cranes which are scheduled to be delivered during 2012 and 2013 offer efficient and reliable cargo handling solutions to the customers.
