Swedish heavy forklift maker SMV Lifttrucks AB has received an order from the Port of Helsingborg for two SC 4545 CAX reach stackers.
The machines have a capacity of 45 tons (40 tonnes) on a 6300mm load centre. Each is equipped with an elevating cab, remote radio control of the lifting boom and attachment, Scania engines, Dana transmissions, and SMV's load-sensing hydraulic system in combination with variable piston pumps.
The new machines are to work in the Port of Helsingborg's new intermodal terminal. The state-of-the-art terminal features a track length of 500 metres, and is long enough to exclude the need to "break" trains.
The port recognises the importance of shipment via rail as an efficient and environmentally-friendly alternative to road transport. The rail track connects with intermodal operator Intercontainer's existing service between Gothenburg and Eskilstuna, Norrkoping, Sodertalje and Gavle.
SMV was acquired by KCI Konecranes in September.
