Cargotec delivers its first Zero Emission(TM) RTGs to Asia

07.04.2011 – Cargotec has completed the delivery of six Kalmar E-One2 rubber-tyred gantry (RTG) cranes featuring Zero Emission(TM) technology to Vietnam’s largest container terminal operator Saigon Newport (SNP) at Cat Lai Terminal in Ho Chi Minh City.

The Kalmar Zero Emission(TM) RTG is Cargotec’s most environmentally friendly model to date.  It features no local emissions, low operating costs and reduced maintenance.  Not only does the machine receive mains power, but it regenerates energy when lowering loads, supplying the power back to the network so that the customer only pays for the actual energy it consumes.  Also helping to reduce costs, the crane features the industry’s longest maintenance interval because the power unit can be eliminated, further enhancing uptime and keeping the terminal environment clean with no risk of oil leakages.

“The handover process went smoothly and SNP is very pleased with the performance of the machines. They appreciate the flexibility in running the cranes with shore or power supply, and the innovative on-screen controls systems ensure their safe and efficient operation,” says Henry Tan, Cargotec’s Director of Industrial & Terminal Business in South & South East Asia.

Commissioned ahead of schedule by on-site Cargotec technicians, these are the first Kalmar Zero Emission(TM) RTGs operating in Asia.
