KALMAR, part of Cargotec, has teamed up with Cummins, a marine terminal tractor equipment manufacturer, to complete its machines' portfolio by 2021.

This electric terminal tractor is due to be launched in 2020 equipped with a 107 kWh lithium-ion battery capable of DC fast charge, enabling operators to charge their vehicles during shift breaks.



To maintain battery life, a thermal management system keeps the tractor within the optimal temperature range, enabling it to operate in a range of climates. The Cummins driveline solution eliminates the need for a transmission on a terminal tractor, simplifying the overall system and reducing maintenance needs, the company explained.



Cummins will provide powertrain technology, including the batteries, for the KT2E model after already launching the fully-electric Ottawa electric terminal tractors (OT2E) in the US last year.



The company's growing portfolio now features both light and medium forklift trucks and its own FastCharge solution for horizontal equipment including automated guided vehicles (AGVs), shuttle and straddle carriers.



Kalmar Terminal Tractors vice president Gina Lopez said: 'In line with our commitment to have a comprehensive electric product portfolio by 2021, we're delighted to announce that we will be releasing our second electric terminal tractor in 2020 with Cummins as our electrification solution provider.



Said Cummins executive director Julie Furber: 'Combining Kalmar's next-generation terminal tractor platform with our lithium-ion battery expertise and experience in system integration, I look forward to delivering optimised electric powertrain solutions for port and distribution customers.'
