Curacao Port Services in Caribbean orders 2 Kalmar ship-to-shore cranes


Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has won a contract to supply two ship-to-shore (STS) cranes with spare parts to Curacao Port Services BV, which is modernising its container handling operations at the Willemstad container terminal in Curacao in the southern Caribbean, according to Shipping Gazette. The delivery of the cranes is expected to be completed by the end of next year.
The island of Curacao is located 35 miles off Venezuela. The port of Willemstad is the main port of the island. Currently, Curacao Port Services operates two Nelcon-Kalmar STS cranes on a 400-metre-long berth at the port.
Curacao Port Services managing director Fernando Da Costa Gomez said: "We chose Kalmar because of their reliability, high technological expertise and wide service network. We have a long relationship with them and expect these new cranes to improve our productivity, safety and eco-efficiency as well as decrease our maintenance costs."
The Panamax cranes to be delivered to Curacao Port Services will have an outreach of 39 metres, under-spreader height of 32 metres and capacity of 40 tons under spreader for single lift operations.
