The Finnish manufacturer will deliver two rubber-tyred gantry cranes (RTGs) to the EUROGATE's Moroccan sea container handling facility in the third quarter of 2019.

The diesel-electric machinery will be able to lift up to 50t, and stack the boxes 7+1 rows wide and 1-over-5 high.

The RTGs will be fitted with the Kalmar SmartRail automated gantry steering solution with Container Position Indication (CPI), which automatically controls the gantry steering and feeds container coordinates to the terminal operating system.

They will also feature Kalmar SmartFleet, a process automation solution that, according to the manufacturer, improves operational transparency and reduces downtime through remote equipment monitoring and reporting.

All RTGs currently operated at EUROGATE Tanger have been supplied by Kalmar.

"Kalmar RTGs have been the backbone of our operations for many years already, so it was a natural step to turn to Kalmar once again when it came to expanding our existing fleet. We appreciate Kalmar for their innovative technical solutions and we are sure to continue together to increase the terminal performance and reliability," Andrea Cervia, CEO, EUROGATE Tanger, commented.

Ilkka Annala, Vice President, Intelligent Crane Solutions, Kalmar, added, "We have enjoyed a very successful long-term relationship with EUROGATE Tanger, and we are very pleased that they have once again chosen our safe, reliable and fuel-efficient RTG solutions to support operations at the terminal."
