Dubai (UAE)-headquartered DP World has ordered a total of 15 rubber-tyred gantry cranes (RTGs) for its Nhava Sheva International Container Terminal (NSICT) in Mumbai (India). The order, which also includes 24 months of on-site maintenance support, will be delivered in the course of next year to be completed in Q4/2020.
NSICT was India’s first public-private partnership project and is part of the country’s largest port, Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT), which handles 40% of India’s total maritime trade. The new crane, Kalmar Classic RTG, is running on diesel and electric technology for fuel savings and low emissions.
At 1,000 hours, it has one of the longest maintenance intervals in the industry, while its modular design makes it easy to tailor to customer requirements. (fd)
