Cargotec Corporation: Kalmar to provide Messina Line in Italy with new fleet of RoRo forklifts


Kalmar, part of Cargotec, is delighted to announce a further order to supply
seven new Kalmar DCE330-RORO units to the leading Italian shipping firm
Messina Line (Ignazio Messina&C S.p.a). The expansion of Messina's fleet has
been made in preparation for larger vessels soon coming to their terminal in
Genoa, Italy. The order has been booked into Cargotec's first quarter intake,
and scheduled for delivery in the second.

The Kalmar DCE330-RORO possesses a 33-tonne lifting capacity, free lift mast
up to three metres high and 360° visibility; and so is equally at home in the
limited space on board ship as it is handling and stacking containers in the
terminal yard. Messina will use the units to handle container and heavy break
bulk on vessels and in the terminal of the vessels destination, to unload
goods when needed.

Kalmar and Messina worked together to adapt and achieve exacting
specifications required to fit the physical constraints within the new ships'
RoRo holds. The mast had to be less than 5350mm and capable of lifting
33,000kg. As such, the forklifts have been equipped with an extra-low triplex
free lift mast.

"We are thrilled to receive a repeat order from such an impressive company,"
remarkedThomas Malmborg
, Vice President, Forklift Trucks at Kalmar. "This demonstrates the proven
reliability of Kalmar products, and in this instance the solid and excellent
support given by Kalmar's organisation in Italy.The previous collaboration
between Kalmar and Messina was very effective, and this time what we will
deliver is seven RoRo forklifts that have been customised to enable operation
inside the confined space of the vessels expected. Messina had precise
requirements and Kalmar worked in close proximity with them to ensure these
needs were met."

Massimo Messina
, Vice President, Messina Line said: "The solid and excellent support from
Kalmar and locally from Kalmar Italia that we received previously made it an
inevitability that we would work with Kalmar again. The seven new Kalmar
DCE330-RORO's will significantly increase the efficiency of our ports, and
once again Kalmar met the brief and specifications exactly. We were very
impressed and they looked after our every need."

Messina line reaches locations over the Mediterranean, Africa and the Middle
East. Founded in 1921, it has grown into a global business with over 1,000
employees and a turnover in excess of EUR 300 million making it the second
largest roll-on roll-off container operator in the world.
