Cargotec has received an order for four Kalmar E-One2 Zero Emission RTG cranes from International Transportation and Trading Joint Stock Company (ITC Corp.) from Vietnam for its new port at Phu Huu Ward Dist. 9, Ho Chi Minh City. The four cranes are part of the first phase, which can handle 2,000-TEU containerships and 36,000 DWT vessels. The delivery of the cranes is scheduled for the first quarter of 2013.
An important incentive for the decision was the environmentally friendly nature of the Kalmar RTGs. Energy consumption is reduced by more than 30 per cent, creating a competitive advantage for the port by ensuring lower operational costs.
The whole Kalmar E-One2 product family, including the Zero Emission RTG with electric power supply, helps customers to meet the latest environmental demands without sacrificing operational productivity and lifetime cost efficiency. The E-One2’s maintenance interval of 1,000 hours, for both crane and optionally for engine, remains by far the longest in the industry and considerably increases terminal operational efficiency.
