All-electric Kalmar RTGs to Greece

By Laura Hatton25 January 2013

Kalmar has signed a contract with Piraeus Container Terminal (PCT) SA in Greece to supply twelve all-electric rubber tyred gantry cranes (RTG).

The RTGs have a 37 tonne lifting capacity and have zero emissions. They are being supplied to increase the port’s stacking capabilities from 2.6 MTEU to 3.1 MTEU per year and to help reduce the port's carbon emissions.

Commenting on the order, Mr Li, PCT deputy general manager, said, "Once we install the 12 RTGs from Kalmar, the stacking capacity of our terminal will increase by 30%, and we believe that our terminal will achieve reduced operating costs with increasing throughputs.”

The cranes are scheduled for delivery in 2013.
