Four Kalmar ASCs delivered to DP World’s Brisbane box facility ahead of schedule
DP World’s Brisbane container terminal has taken delivery of its first shipment of four Kalmar Automatic Stacking Cranes (ASCs) as part of its AU$250 million automation project.
The ASCs, arriving ahead of schedule, are part of an order placed by the Dubai-based terminal operator last year with Kalmar for 14 ASCs and 14 manned Shuttle Carriers.
“The commissioning and delivery of the ASC’s and Shuttle Carriers is paramount to the successful delivery of the project,” said Kalmar Australia’s vice president, Peter McLean.
“We have employed a local team of project managers, electricians, mechanics, trades assistants, assembly workers and project support people.”
Kalmar Australia’s commissioning team, along with Brisbane-based contractors Brimar Electric Australia and Heavy Haulage Australia, began the ASC assembling process earlier this week
“The appointment of this team shows Kalmar’s commitment to the success of the DP World project and to the local economy,” added McLean.
