Kalmar has received a repeat order from the Victoria International Container Terminal (VICT) at the Port of Melbourne, located at Webb Dock East, for six Automatic Stacking Cranes (ASCs).

This comes as part of the terminal’s capacity expansion program and will see the cranes join the current fleet of 20 Kalmar ACSs already operating at VICT.

The order was made in Cargotec’s 2021 Q3 intake and delivery is expected to be completed by Q2 2023.

“Kalmar solutions form the backbone of our operations at Webb Dock East. The yard capacity expansion and the new Automatic Stacking Cranes will allow us to increase the productivity of our operations to meet the growing customer demand on both quay and landside,” said Jon Wheeler, Chief Operating Officer at VICT.

“The additional storage blocks will also add resiliency, allowing for improved planned maintenance, minimising disruption to our stakeholders.”

Daniel Ho, Vice President of Sales at Asia-Pacific Kalmar, added “We are excited to continue our long-term collaboration with VICT and help them gain the maximum benefit from their automated solutions.

“Our ability to deliver fully erected and tested machines will ensure that the customer can start to leverage their new solutions faster without disrupting ongoing operations.”

Another repeat order Kalmar received during Cargotec’s 2021 Q3 order intake saw PPC Intermodal S.A (PCC) purchase three new laden container reachstackers and two new empty container reachstackers. This equipment is set to be used in the Kutno and Gliwice intermodal terminals in Poland and delivery is scheduled to begin in Q1 of 2022 and completed by Q1 of 2023.
