The EUROGATE Tanger container terminal in Morocco is to benefit from two new Kalmar rubber tyred gantry cranes (RTGs).

The order was booked in Kalmar parent company Cargotec’s 2018 Q3 order intake, with delivery scheduled to take place during Q3 of next year.

The products will be 7+1 rows wide and 1-over-5 high, with a lifting capacity of 50 tonnes under the spreader.

They will come with the Kalmar SmartRail automated gantry steering solution with Container Position Indication, which automatically controls gantry steering and feeds container coordinates to the Terminal Operating System, and will also come with Kalmar SmartFleet — a process automation solution that boosts operational transparency and decreases downtime through remote equipment monitoring and reporting.

The Kalmar Classic RTG, according to Cargotec, combines the best of diesel and electric technology to enable fuel savings, low emissions and easy maintenance.

It has one of the longest maintenance intervals in the sector — 1,000 hours — while its modular design means it is easy to tailor to customer-specific requirements.

Kalmar has supplied all of the RTGs operating at EUROGATE Tanger thus far.

Noting that cranes of this sort from the firm have been “the backbone” of EUROGATE Tanger operations for many years, the terminal’s chief executive Andrea Cervia, commenting on the order, said it was therefore “a natural step” to choose the firm again when it came to expanding the fleet at the facility.

“We appreciate Kalmar for their innovative technical solutions, and we are sure to continue together to increase the terminal performance and reliability,” he added.
