Cargotec RTG order for Ho Chi Minh City

02 December 2009

Saigon Newport Company (SNP) in Vietnam has awarded Cargotec a contract for a further six all-electric Kalmar E-One rubber-tyred gantry (RTG) cranes.

They are for the first phase of the Tan Cang-Cai Mep International Container deepwater port near Ho Chi Minh City. SNP's 6+1 wide and 1-over-5 high RTGs will come with the Kalmar Smartpath container position verification system and will be delivered in the first quarter of 2010. The latest RTGs are the same as the 20 units ordered by SNP in 2007.

Commenting on the latest order, Henry Tan, sales director, South East Asia, Cargotec, said, "Over the years we have supplied SNP with twenty RTGs, reachstackers and terminal tractors. At the same time we have a strengthened our presence in Vietnam by providing a broader range of equipment, technology and services. Vietnam's container industry is developing as the trade is growing and we are building on the closer co-operation with our customers to play an important role in this development."
