Two of Cargotec's Kalmar RTGs are bound for Eurogate's Tanger terminal
KALMAR, part of Cargotec, is to deliver two rubber-tyre gantry cranes (RTGs) to Eurogate, for use at its Tanger terminal in Morocco
04 November 2018 - 19:00
The order was booked in Cargotec's 2018 Q3 order intake, with delivery scheduled to take place during Q3 of 2019.
The terminal is located on the Strait of Gibraltar in Morocco, a transshipment hub for the western Mediterranean, Africa and South America.
With a quay length of 812 metres, a terminal area of 400,000-square metres and a water depth of up to 18 metres, the facility is well-equipped to handle the new generation of container ships. All RTGs currently operating at the terminal have been supplied by Kalmar.
The RTGs will be 7+1 rows wide and 1-over-5 high, with a lifting capacity of 50 tons under the spreader. They will be fitted with the Kalmar SmartRail automated gantry steering solution with Container Position Indication (CPI), which automatically controls the gantry steering and feeds container coordinates to the Terminal Operating System.
