Kalmar has secured a deal with PT Riau Andalan Pulp and Paper (PT RAPP), to supply the Port of Buatan with two new-generation zero emission rubber-tyred gantry cranes (RTGs), two essential container handlers and an essential reachstacker.
The new machinery will add to the ports current fleet of four Kalmar SmartPower RTG’s delivered in 2018 and 2019 and is scheduled to be delivered in Q3 of 2022, after being ordered in Cargotec’s Q3 2021 intake.
“We have worked with Kalmar since 2018. The company’s fuel-efficient SmartPower cranes have helped us achieve significant efficiencies in managing our fuel costs and emissions, improving productivity, and increasing safety as well as simplifying our maintenance processes,” said Refnil Dodi, Logistic Operation Manager at PT RAPP.
“Furthermore, we have been very satisfied with the support we have received from Kalmar’s local and regional teams.”
Daniel Ho, Vice President of Sales at Kalmar Asia-Pacific, added “Our collaboration with PT RAPP has gone from strength to strength, and we are pleased that they have chosen to expand their fleet with our all-electric cranes and essential mobile equipment.
“Kalmar Zero-Emission RTGs are ideal for businesses that want to significantly reduce their carbon footprint, and our new generation cranes offer an intelligent, optimised solution with a stronger, modular, lighter and simpler design, making them even more eco-efficient, cost-effective and easier to maintain.”
Kalmar is also supplying the Kenya Port Authority with three forklift trucks and eight reachstackers. Also booked in Cargotec’s Q3 of 2021 order intake, these new orders are expected to arrive in Q1 of 2022.
