Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has announced that it will supply DP World with 15 Kalmar rubber-tyred gantry cranes (RTGs) for the Nhava Sheva International Container Terminal (NSICT) in Mumbai, India.
The order, which also includes a two years of on-site maintenance support, was booked in Cargotec’s 2019 Q2 order intake with delivery scheduled for Q4 2020.
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% of India’s total maritime trade.
The Kalmar Classic RTG combines the best of electric and diesel technology for fuel savings, low emissions and easy maintenance. It has one of the longest maintenance intervals in the industry at 1,000 hours, while its modular design makes it easy to customize to customer needs.
According to a statement, the units delivered to Nhava Sheva will be equipped with a Variable Speed Generator (VSG) that allows even higher fuel economy and lower emissions by automatically optimizing RPM based on the power required.
