Cargotec Receives RTG Order from Brazil
Kalmar, the business area providing container handling solutions within Cargotec, has received an order for 12 E-One RTGs (rubber-tyred gantry cranes) from Santos Brasil S/A, the largest terminal operator in South America. The E-one RTGs will be delivered to the Santos Brasil S/A terminal at the Port of Santos between September 2007 and January 2008.
The Santos Brasil S/A terminal handles approximately 20 percent of all container throughput in Brazil. In 2005, the terminal handled more than one million TEU (TEU is a 20 ft container).
Kalmar and Santos Brasil S/A have been working together for years. Kalmar previously delivered 11 reachstackers to the company and has continually supported Santos Brasil S/A with spare parts and services. Now ordered RTGs will be equipped with Kalmar Smartrail® - an automatic steering and container position verification system.
Unit prices for RTGs vary between EUR 1-1.5 million.
