Kalmar wins order for 22 E-One+ RTGs from South Africa's Transnet Ltd.
Kalmar Industries has received an order for 22 E-One+ rubber-tyred gantry cranes (RTGs) from South Africa's Transnet Ltd, the parent company of port operator Transnet Port Terminals (TPT).

The 7+1 wide and one-over-five high RTGs outfitted with Bromma spreaders are equipped with Kalmar's autosteering and container position verification system, Smartrail.

Deliveries will start in October and the final cranes will arrive in April 2009. They will operate at South Africa's newest port development, Port of Ngqura, which is expected to be fully operational by mid-2009.

The Port of Ngqura, located at the mouth of the Coega River in Algoa Bay and 20 kilometres (12.4 miles) east of Port Elizabeth, received its first vessel this month. The port is being constructed to handle up to 970,000 TEU using two berths and is expected to grow to 2 million TEU using four berths.

Vietnam International Container Terminals (VICT) has agreed to buy 17 Kalmar E-One+ RTGs to handle rising container traffic at its Ho Chi Minh City facility.

The 6+1 wide and one-over-six high units will replace older RTGs and be delivered between 2008 and 2010. VICT handled 572,020 TEU in 2007 using five ship-to-shore cranes, RTGs and reach stackers.

Thailand's LCMT Company Ltd has ordered six E-One+ RTGs as part of its plans to expand terminal operations at the Port of Laem Chabang. The 6+1, one-over-six high units will be delivered by March 2009.
