Cargotec's Kalmar has secured a big equipment order from DP World.

DP World has ordered 81 Kalmar Ottawa T2 terminal tractors for its South Container Terminal (SCT) in the multipurpose Jeddah Islamic Port, Saudi Arabia.

Mohammad Alshaikh, CEO DP World Jeddah and Country Head KSA, said: “The new equipment procured from Kalmar and added to our equipment portfolio will further accelerate DP World Jeddah’s SCT development plans, which aim to further enhance its infrastructure capabilities and technology driven services to continue providing our customers with seamless quality services.

“This will ensure that DP World Jeddah continues to strengthen and grow Jeddah’s Islamic Port position and capabilities as a key strategic port in KSA and the region.”

The Kalmar Ottawa T2 combines power, functionality and performance with excellent ergonomics and easy maintenance access. The 81 units delivered to SCT will incorporate a range of additional safety features including an automatic fire extinguisher system, a reverse warning system and a drive speed limiter system.

In addition to Kalmar terminal tractors, the current equipment fleet at SCT includes Kalmar reachstackers and empty container handlers.

Delivery is scheduled for Q2 2022.

DP World was awarded a 30-year Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) concession in 2019 by the Saudi Ports Authority (Mawani), for the management and development of SCT at Jeddah Islamic Port.
