Cargotec Receives an Order for 32 E-One+ RTGs from South Africa
Kalmar, the business area providing container handling solutions within Cargotec, has received an order for 32 E-One+ rubber-tyred gantry (RTG) cranes from South Africa's Transnet Limited, the parent company of terminal operator Transnet Port Terminals (TPT). The new 1-over-5 high and 1+6 wide units -scheduled for delivery starting in June 2009 with the final cranes arriving by November 2010 - are earmarked for the expansion of TPT's Cape Town Container Terminal operation.
The RTGs will be supplied with Kalmar's Smartrail®, an autosteering and container position verification system, and will be fitted with Bromma spreaders.
The unit price for an E-One+ rubber-tyred gantry crane varies between EUR 1-1.5 million.
This latest agreement follows on from a series of recent orders for Kalmar E-One+ RTGs and straddle carriers from Transnet, further demonstrating Kalmar's commitment to ensuring the smooth and efficient operation of South Africa's largest stevedore.
