Kalmar Straddle Carriers

Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has concluded an agreement with Steveco to supply a total of six diesel-electric straddle carriers for use at the Mussalo terminal in Kotka, Finland. The order was booked in Cargotec's 2019 Q4 order intake with delivery scheduled to be completed during Q2 2020.

Steveco Group, a leading port operator in Finland, employs approximately 850 people and has annual revenues of over EUR 150 million. In addition to the Mussalo terminal, the Group also has operations at the Hietanen, Hamina and Vuosaari terminals along Finland’s south coast. The new straddle carriers will join an already extensive and varied fleet of Kalmar equipment which also includes terminal tractors, forklift trucks and reachstackers.

The Kalmar Straddle Carrier is driven by a highly efficient diesel-electric power unit and features excellent manoeuvrability, quiet operation and easy maintenance. The spacious, ergonomic cabin and intuitive user interface improve productivity by ensuring that operators benefit from the best possible driving experience.
