Kalmar has marked the delivery of its 1,000th Kalmar DCG90-180 forklift. The handover of the machine to Norwegian NorSea A/S took place last week at Kalmar's factory in Lidhult, Sweden.

"It is very special for us to deliver the 1,000th Kalmar DCG90-180 forklift to NorSea. Our relationship goes back many years, and NorSea has been a loyal customer of both Kalmar forklifts and reachstackers," said Thomas Malmborg, vice president, forklift trucks at Kalmar.

The Kalmar DCG90-180 is a mid-range forklift with a lifting capacity of 9 to 18 T.

When the DCG90-180 was first launched at CeMAT in 2011, it marked the starting point of the new G-generation of Kalmar forklifts. It came with several important improvements that have since become Kalmar hallmarks, including a new electric system and variable hydraulic system.

The machine is widely acknowledged for its versatility, durability and high productivity and it has been deployed for a wide variety of industrial applications.

Kalmar says delivery of its 1,000th machine "closes a circle of successful co-operation with NorSea". NorSea uses a variety of Kalmar equipment purchased for its operations in the oil and gas industry. Like many forklifts before it, the 1,000th unit comes equipped with a clamp attachment to move pipes, the main forklift application for NorSea.

Besides Lidhult, Sweden, the DCG90-180 is manufactured in Cibolo, Texas to support Kalmar's US market.
