Kalmar has signed a deal to deploy 12 Ottawa T2 terminal tractors and two empty container handlers at DP World Caucedo in the Dominican Republic.

The order was booked in Cargotec’s 2020 Q3 order intake, with delivery scheduled for Q1 of 2021.

The facility comprises a container terminal and free zone, located in Punta Caucedo, 25 km from Santo Domingo, the country’s commercial and political capital.

Caucedo’s equipment fleet was expanded during 2020 with 38 Kalmar Ottawa T2 terminal tractors as part of an order from late 2019.

This latest batch of 12 will incorporate the same additional safety features including the automatic fire extinguisher system, which can automatically detect and extinguish vehicle fires in seconds, thereby increasing the safety of personnel and equipment.

Suresh Ananthanarayan, sales director, Kalmar, said: “Our terminal tractors and empty container handlers have already proven their worth at Caucedo, so we are happy to continue to support the customer with new equipment to complement their new ship-to-shore cranes.”
