Cargotec Corporation: Kalmar delivers 27 straddle carriers to Maher Terminals LLC in Elizabeth, New Jersey, USA


Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has received a large order for 27 straddle carriers
from its long-term customer Maher Terminals LLC in Elizabeth, New Jersey,
USA. The order has been booked into Cargotec's 2015 third quarter order
intake and deliveries are expected to be completed during the spring 2016.

Maher Terminals is both renewing and expanding their straddle carrier fleet,
now with environmentally responsible diesel-electric power utilizing U.S.
EPA-mandated Tier 4 Final emission controls. The Kalmar ESC350
diesel-electric straddle carriers are rated for 50 metric tons (mt) with twin
20 feet containers or 40 mt with single containers. Included also in these
straddle carriers are special features to improve productivity and
performance in the challenging operating conditions of the customer.
Furthermore, the straddle carriers will be pre-tested in Kalmar's testing
facilities and delivered fully erected, allowing shorter installation and
commissioning time at the customer's site.

"Maher Terminals LLC is a long-standing customer of ours and we value the
relationship greatly. We are honored to be part of their development
activities," commentedRichard Pope
, Kalmar's manager of port crane sales in North America. "When the industry is
