Share

CARGOTEC CORPORATION, PRESS RELEASE, 3 SEPTEMBER 2020 AT NOON (EEST)

Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has concluded an agreement to supply Marsa Maroc with a total of three Kalmar rubber-tyred gantry (RTG) cranes for use at its TC3 container terminal, located in Casablanca, Morocco. The order, which includes an option for an additional two cranes, was booked in Cargotec’s Q3 order intake. Delivery is scheduled for Q2 2021.

Marsa Maroc is the main operator of ports in Morocco and the concession holder of Terminal Container 3 Port Casablanca (TC3). TC3 was established in 2015 in order to modernise the port of Casablanca, and it is the customer’s first terminal with Kalmar RTGs. The three new Kalmar RTGs will join eleven other units delivered to Marsa Maroc in 2016 and 2018. The company’s equipment fleet also includes Kalmar terminal tractors, straddle carriers and empty container handlers. 

The Kalmar RTG combines the best of diesel and electric technology for fuel savings, low emissions and easy maintenance. At 1,000 hours, it has one of the longest maintenance intervals in the industry, and its modular design makes it easy to tailor to customer-specific requirements.

Tawfik Chahir, Terminal Operations Director, Marsa Maroc: “We have relied on Kalmar equipment and services since the 1990’s and we have built an excellent working relationship with the Kalmar team during our collaboration. We are pleased to continue this relationship and look forward to developing our operations at TC3 with Kalmar’s support.”

Mikko Mononen, Vice President, Sales, EMEIA, Kalmar: “We are delighted to have secured yet another order from Marsa Maroc, who have chosen our RTGs three times in a row during the past five years. This order demonstrates the customer’s confidence in our proven RTG cranes as well as their overall satisfaction with our solutions and world-class service expertise.”
