Kalmar RTGs destined for DP World

By Euan Youdale30 March 2011

DP World, operating in Sydney, Australia has ordered four Kalmar E-One2 rubber-tyred gantry (RTG) cranes.

The new units will augment the customer's existing fleet of RTGs at their Port Botany terminal. Delivery of the cranes is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2011.

The eight-wheeled, all-electric Kalmar E-One2 RTGs feature load capacities of 41 tonnes and the ability to stack containers 8+1 wide and 1-over-5 high. The new machines will be delivered with a full specification, including fuel efficient variable speed generator (VSG) engines, as well as Cargotec's UniQ diagnostics tools and automatic steering and container position verification system, Smartrail.

DP World operates terminals in Brisbane, Adelaide, Fremantle and Melbourne as well as Sydney. The investment fund Citi Infrastructure Partners (CIP) recently entered into a strategic partnership with the Dubai-based global container terminal operator, taking a 75 % stake in the DP World Australia group. DP World will continue to retain a 25 percent stake in the Australian business.
