Svante Alveronn, general sales manager, Sweden, Kalmar Industries, said: “Kalmar has worked closely with the Port of Gothenburg for more than 40 years, which makes it easy for both of us to expand our co-operation to more sophisticated solutions. The port has a mixed fleet of Kalmar straddle carriers, forklift trucks, reachstackers and terminal tractors. We feel that this new contract is a breakthrough in providing customer-focused solutions.”
Kalmar’s DRF100 reachstacker features an engine with low emissions, smooth, automatic gearshift and ergonomic driver controls. The reachstackers will be supplied with Kalmar’s Remote Monitoring Interface (RMI) system, which enables the operation of a large number of machines to be monitored remotely by a single operator in the terminal control room, in real time.
The Port of Gothenburg, the largest port in Scandinavia, handled 840,000 teu in 2007.
