Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has signed an order for nine all-electric rubber-tyred gantry cranes (ERTGs) with Piraeus Container Terminal (PCT) in Greece.

Previous deliveries to the container terminal include 12 ERTGs in 2013 and nine ERTGs in 2015. Li Jianchun, PCT deputy general manager, said, “These latest Kalmar E-One2 Zero Emission RTGs will be working in the Pier III expansion area, helping us to enhance capacity in the yard. The ERTGs apply new technologies that enhance productivity, reliability and flexibility, which we consider to be tremendous achievements. The cranes will be manufactured at Rainbow-Cargotec Industries like the previous ones delivered by Kalmar. We have been extremely satisfied with both the crane quality and on-time deliveries.”

The Kalmar E-One2 RTG has a 41 tonne safe working load capacity. The cranes for PCT will be fitted with the Kalmar SmartRail automatic gantry steering system.
