Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has received a repeat order from Terminaux de Normandie to supply 12 diesel-electric straddle carriers for use at both Terminal Normandie MSC & Terminal Porte Océane located at the Port of Le Havre. Terminal Normandie MSC & Terminal Porte Océane, part of Terminal Investment limited portfolio, are MSC’s and 2M’s principal French gateway terminals with barge and rail intermodal connectivity to the European market. The order was booked in Cargotec's 2022 first-quarter order intake, and delivery is expected to be completed during the fourth quarter of 2022. The order follows the delivery of a similar order booked in the third quarter of 2021.
The Kalmar Straddle Carriers delivered to Terminaux de Normandie will have a four-high stacking capacity and a lifting capacity of 50 tons. Powered by a highly efficient diesel-electric power unit, the machines feature excellent manoeuvrability, quiet operation and easy maintenance as well as a spacious, ergonomic cabin that improves productivity by providing operators with the best possible driving experience.
Arnaud Roques, Managing Director, Terminaux de Normandie: "As France's leading container terminal operator, we are committed to providing our customers with innovative and high-quality services. Kalmar’s solutions fit perfectly with our ambitions. We are confident that the new straddle carriers will deliver high performance and reliability combined with low operating and maintenance costs. We would like to thank the whole team involved in this project as we just received delivery of the first batch of 12 new units, this as a first step of our new partnership.” Mikko Mononen, Vice President, Sales, EMEIA, Kalmar: "We are honoured to continue our collaboration with Terminaux de Normandie and look forward to the fruitful collaboration with them. This repeat order demonstrates the strength of our proven straddle carrier technology and our ability to tailor our solutions to meet customers’ operational needs.”
