KALMAR, part of Cargotec, is to supply DP World with a total of 15 rubber-tyred gantry cranes (RTGs) for the Nhava Sheva International Container Terminal (NSICT) in Mumbai, India. Delivery of the equipment is scheduled to be completed during the fourth quarter of 2020 and the deal includes 24 months of on-site maintenance support.
The Kalmar RTG combines diesel and electric technology for fuel savings, low emissions and easy maintenance. At 1,000 hours, it has one of the longest maintenance intervals in the industry, while its modular design makes it easy to tailor to customer requirements.
The units delivered to Nhava Sheva will be equipped with a variable speed generator (VSG) which enables greater fuel economy and lower emissions by automatically optimising revolutions per minute (RPMs) according to the required power.
Kalmar automation solutions vice president Eduardo Prat said: 'This order is a reflection of the skill and dedication of our local service team in India, whose unparalleled knowledge of RTG technology will ensure that we can continue to provide NSICT with world-class service and support.'
NSICT was India's first public-private partnership project and is part of the country's largest port, Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT), which handles 40 per cent of India's total maritime trade.
