Kalmar is continuing its long standing partnership with DP World supplying seven new empty container handlers to the new Jebel Ali port development in Dubai.

Due for delivery before April 2014, the container handlers will equip the operator’s brand new Container Terminal 3 with its 1,860 metres of quayside, 70 hectare yard and 4m teu of capacity.

The new machines are equipped with several options designed to enhance operator safety including a twistlock monitoring camera, rear warning system and vehicle data output.

“DP World is a very important and long time customer for Kalmar. This latest order is a result of the excellent, fast and flexible communication between our companies,” said Paul Michon, Kalmar strategic manager for DP World.

This latest order follows orders for several units of Kalmar mobile equipment for DP World’s terminals in the Middle East and Africa.

This year, Kalmar has kitted out Jeddah in Saudi Arabia and Doraleh Container Terminal (DCT) in Djibouti, Africa with new reachstackers. It has also just received a new order for two new reachstackers for DP World QICT Karachi in Pakistan.

The equipment expert has also previously supplied forklift trucks to Jebel Ali, terminals 1 and 2.
