Kalmar’s proven RTG technology selected by DP World for Nhava Sheva International Container Terminal in India

Kalmar, part of Cargotec, is to supply DP World with a total of 15 Kalmar rubber-tyred gantry cranes (RTGs) for the Nhava Sheva International Container Terminal (NSICT) in Mumbai, India. The order, which also includes 24 months of on-site maintenance support, was booked in Cargotec's 2019 Q2 order intake with delivery scheduled to be completed during Q4 2020, the company said in its release.

Kalmar and DP World, one of the world's leading operators of marine and inland terminals, have developed a highly successful partnership over many years of working together. The two companies share a vision of a more eco-efficient and sustainable future for the cargo-handling industry, and Kalmar's equipment enables successful daily operations at several DP World terminals around the world.

NSICT was India’s first public-private partnership project and is part of the country’s largest port, Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT), which handles 40% of India’s total maritime trade.

The Kalmar Classic RTG combines the best of diesel and electric technology for fuel savings, low emissions and easy maintenance. At 1,000 hours, it has one of the longest maintenance intervals in the industry, while its modular design makes it easy to tailor to customer requirements. The units delivered to Nhava Sheva will be equipped with a Variable Speed Generator (VSG) which enables even greater fuel economy and lower emissions by automatically optimising RPM according to the required power.

Kalmar offers the widest range of cargo handling solutions and services to ports, terminals, distribution centres and to heavy industry. Kalmar is the industry forerunner in terminal automation and in energy efficient container handling, with one in four container movements around the globe being handled by a Kalmar solution.
