The new CSC340 units on order will be capable of stacking containers one-over-two with loads of up to 40 tonnes. Kalmar 7+ generation straddle carriers feature a modular design that is also well-equipped to handle the harsh winter conditions of the St. Petersburg area.

NCC’s terminal network includes First Container Terminal (FCT, St. Petersburg), Logistika-Terminal (Shushary, St.Petersburg) and Ust-Luga Container Terminal (ULCT, Leningrad region). The aggregated throughput of NCC terminals in 2010 amounted to about 1.3m teu.

From Australia, Cargotec has received an order for four Kalmar E-One2 RTGs from DP World’s Port Botany terminal in Sydney with delivery scheduled for Q4, 2011.

The eight-wheeled all-electric Kalmar E-One2 RTGs which will augment the three existing Kalmar RTGs that were delivered in 2006, will feature load capacities of 41 tonnes and the ability to stack containers 8+1 wide and 1-over-5 high. Among the specifications selected by DP World are the fuel efficient variable speed generator (VSG) engines, Cargotec’s UniQ diagnostics tools and its Smartrail® automatic steering and container position verification system,.

Investment fund Citi Infrastructure Partners, (CIP) recently entered into a strategic partnership with the Dubai-based global container terminal operator, taking a 75% in DP World Australia. DP World will retain a 25% stake in the Australian business and will manage the five container terminals under a long-term deal.
