Kalmar delivers five RTG to Evergreen in Taiwan
Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has successfully delivered five rubber-tyred gantry (RTG) cranes to Evergreen International Storage & Transport Corporation in Taiwan. The cranes will be used in Taoyuan Inland Container Terminal and Hsichih Inland Container Terminal, the company said in its press release.
Evergreen International Storage & Transport Corporation offers inland container terminal services to customers all over Taiwan, including lifting operations and control of inbound and outbound containers; container repairing and cleaning service; and warehousing in the distribution center. The company is now expanding the business to international logistics market. The five Kalmar RTG cranes will significantly improve operational efficiency in the inland container terminals as well as help the company to achieve their business targets.
Kalmar RTG features a low-emission diesel engine and an all-electric trolley, wheel turning and spreader. As it uses no hydraulics, servicing is straightforward and there are fewer components to inspect and maintain. The Kalmar RTG's maintenance interval of 1,000 hours is the longest in the industry.
The five new Kalmar RTGs joined a fleet of six Kalmar empty container handlers at Evergreen International Storage & Transport Corporation. The cranes were delivered from Kalmar's joint venture Rainbow-Cargotec Industries in Taicang, China.
