30 Kalmar Ottawa T2 Terminal Tractors to the Tecon Santos
Kalmar has secured an order to supply a total of 30 Kalmar Ottawa T2 Terminal Tractors to the Tecon Santos container terminal in Brazil, operated by Santos Brasil Participações S.A. The order was booked in Cargotec's third quarter 2018 order intake, with delivery of the machines scheduled to take place through the first quarter of 2019.

Tecon Santos is located in the largest port in Latin America in São Paulo and is one of Brazil's leading logistics companies and biggest container terminal. The terminal covers an area of almost 600,000 sqm, including 12,000 sqm of warehousing space, and has an annual handling capacity of 2 million TEUs.

Kalmar equipment forms the backbone of the Tecon Santos fleet, which includes Kalmar rubber-tyred gantry cranes (RTGs), empty container handlers and terminal tractors.

The new Kalmar Ottawa T2 terminal tractors form part of the terminal's fleet expansion program, initiated to address the significant growth in demand seen in the past year.

Marlos Silva Tavares, operations director at Tecon Santos, says since Kalmar equipment already makes up such a large proportion of the existing fleet, "it was natural that we turned to them once again to support us with our extensive fleet expansion program".

"We have seen demand rise sharply during 2018, handling 2.9% more containers in the first half of the year compared to the same period in 2017. The new terminal tractors will be instrumental in helping us address this growth and ensuring our operations can continue to run smoothly and efficiently."
