Kalmar delivers six hybrid straddle carriers to French terminal

Kalmar, a division of Cargotec, has inked a deal with Med Europe Terminal to deliver six Kalmar hybrid straddle carriers.

The order was entered into Cargotec’s Q1 2024 order intake. The machines are planned to be delivered in Q4 2024.

The terminal, located in the Port of Marseille on France’s south coast, already has a fleet of Kalmar diesel-electric straddle carriers.

The new hybrid straddle carriers are part of a fleet renewal project designed to improve the terminal’s environmental performance.

We are looking forward to welcoming the new hybrid straddle carriers to our fleet at the end of the year and to continuing our long-standing partnership with Kalmar.”

Herve Helluin, Service Operations Manager, Kalmar, stated: “We are delighted to support Med Europe Terminal as they move towards more eco-efficient operations. Our proven hybrid solution, which can cut fuel consumption by up to 40 per cent compared to equivalent diesel-powered machines, continues to be an extremely popular choice among leading terminal operators around the world.”

In March, Kalmar and Forterra (previously RRAI) signed a cooperative development agreement for autonomous terminal tractor systems.
