Cartagena buys Kalmar

These will be the first Kalmar STS cranes and Kalmar Zero Emission E-One2 RTGs operating in South America.

“SPRC is a leading South American terminal operator currently operating with one of the largest Kalmar RTG fleets globally. The order is a great milestone for Cargotec’s growing business in South America,” says Dan House, managing director, Latin America for Kalmar.

The STS cranes feature optimised hoisting speeds requiring minimal energy consumption and the 24 Kalmar E-One2 Zero Emission RTG cranes will receive electrical energy from an automated busbar connection.

Named Best Port of the Caribbean five times by the Caribbean Shipping Association, the port of Cartagena is currently expanding its capacity to accommodate an annual throughput of 4.5m teu.
