Super Terminais have ordered four rubber-tyred gantry cranes for US$8m from Kalmar, due to begin use by July 2015.
Marcello Di Gregorio, managing director of Super Terminais, said: “We chose the E-One2 RTG due to Kalmar’s advanced technology and design, lighter weight compared to other RTGs, and as an environmental solution that reduces CO2 emissions.”
The RTGs include an all-electric drive mechanism that, according to a statement from Kalmar, produces no emissions or engine noises. They also include a standard diesel generator set for dual-mode operation.
Kalmar’s SmartRail and SmartStack systems are included as part of the latest deal along with a spare parts package and one spare spreader.
