Patrick Terminals will expand its Kalmar AutoStrad fleet
Kalmar will supply 10 Kalmar AutoStrad units to Patrick Terminals. The order for the fully automated straddle carriers was booked in Cargotec's 2020 Q2 order intake, with delivery of the machines scheduled to be completed during Q1 of 2021.

The value of the order was not disclosed.

Patrick Terminals is Australia's leading container terminal operator, handling over three million TEUs annually. The company operates some of Australia's most technologically advanced terminals at four strategically located ports: Brisbane AutoStrad Terminal, Sydney AutoStrad Terminal, Melbourne Terminal and Fremantle Terminal in Western Australia.

In January 2020, the company signed a comprehensive software maintenance and support agreement with Kalmar covering the equipment automation systems at the Brisbane and Sydney terminals.

Of the 10 new 8th generation Kalmar AutoStrads, seven will operate in Brisbane and three in Sydney. The machines are part of Patrick Terminals' ongoing fleet renewal program and will join the existing fleet of over 130 Kalmar straddle carriers, replacing some of the older-generation Kalmar AutoStrads in the fleet.

Michael Jovicic, chief executive officer of Patrick Terminals, says the Kalmar AutoStrad is a critical piece of equipment for the Brisbane and Sydney terminals. Patrick is pleased "to be able to take advantage of the improved performance, reliability and efficiency that these new-generation machines will offer," he adds.

Daniel Ho, Kalmar vice president, solutions sales, APAC, says: "Our collaboration with Patrick Terminals stretches back many years, and this new order will help to further enhance what is already a world-class automation solution based on our proven technologies."
