Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has signed a contract with a major North American sand logistics provider for an order of ten Kalmar Rough Terrain Container Handlers (RTCH). The new Kalmar machines will provide easily transportable container handling in rough terrain with capacities of up to 65,000 pounds (29,000 KG). The order, booked in Cargotec's 2017 fourth quarter intake with delivery scheduled to start in second quarter 2018, will serve as the foundation of the customer's new fleet of heavy equipment. The value of the order is approximately EUR 10 million.
Kalmar Rough Terrain Center in Cibolo, Texas, has produced over 1,300 RTCHs that are in service around the globe. This latest version of the RTCH will feature Kalmar's G-generation cabin and advanced software to provide exceptional container handling in the toughest environments. Equipped with a modern Tier IV engine and attachments for sling load handling, the 4 wheel drive and steer, RTCH will bring added productivity to this customer's operating environment. Backed by Kalmar's extensive dealer and service network, this partnership represents a game-changing container handling solution to the oil and gas market sector.
